Can you spot the dragon in the parade?
Maybe you could create a dragon using junk materials you can find at home. Here are some pictures to help you.

First we have to finish this week's activities.
Look at a time line showing us when the first flight's were recorded.
Let's look at how planes have changed over the years.
You are going to invent your own airplane which will fly in the future. Think about the shape and size. Will it be huge or just for one person?
We started with a superhero, let's finish this week being a Superhero!
Try and tick off as many of these exercises as you can. After you have finished, what superpowers do you feel you have now! How does it feel being a superhero?
Have a fabulous half term. Keep well and stay safe, relax and enjoy
Thursday 11th February
Hello everyone, I hope you are all feeling ok?
Let's look at a fact file about Orville and Wilbur Wright. Then see if you can fill in the worksheet below.
See if you can use the facts to fill in the worksheet.
How did you get on making the clothes peg plane yesterday?
Today you are going to try to build a bi-plane!
These are the materials you need. You can paint it any colour.
This is how it should look like.
This is the underneath. The money is stuck on, so the plane doesn't tip forward.
If you are finding making your plane a bit tricky, try this simple exercise.
How about having a game? This is a good game for practicing your memory skills. Watch the video and have a go with your family. Enjoy
Wednesday 10th February
Good morning Class 11. It is very cold today, so make sure you wrap up warm if you are brave enough to go outside!
This is a video of the original old film showing the Wright Brothers flying their planes. Can you see that their plane has two wings, one under the other! Very different to the planes we have now!
You are going to have a go at making one of these planes. You will need a clothes peg, some wooden lolly sticks, glue and paint.
You need a packet of M&M's for this task. Perhaps ask a family member to buy a packet for you the next time they go shopping if you haven't got any in the house. Perhaps you can play it another time. You can always discuss your feelings with a family member too.
Tuesday 9th February
Morning all how are you all doing?
Today we are going to watch a cartoon video all about the Wright Brothers.
Here is a picture of the Wright Brothers first airplane for you to colour.
Here is the link if you would like to print it out.
What is different about the Wright brother's plane to the ones we now have? Can you name 3 differences?
Sometimes we all have more than one emotion during the day and that's ok. We might feel grumpy when we wake up, but after breakfast we might feel happy, then later we might become anxious but these emotions don't usually last long. Can you find all the different emotions to fit in the squares!
Keep a diary for today to see how many different emotions you have had during the day.
Hope you enjoyed learning more about the Wright Brothers. If you have coloured in the picture or filled in the Emotions quiz, we would love to see your efforts. Take a picture and post onto our google Classroom page.
Have a terrific Tuesday :-)

It is so important to have a good nights sleep so that your body and mind can recharge its self ready for the next day. Sometimes we have problems/worries whizzing around our brain though and that stops us from sleeping. So, you are going to make a worry doll that might help you sleep better.
Listen to this book first.

Perhaps you can make a friend cutout and write your friend's name on one and your name on another. Write down why you think he/she is kind or what kind things you could do for them.
Fold a piece of paper/card in half, draw the shape, make sure you draw the arm and legs on the fold line and cut out everything apart from where the arm and leg join. When you open it out, you will have two friends holding hands with a heart in the middle - like the bottom picture.
