Splendid Skies


f  l  o  a  t  i  n  g  high above land and sea on a bed of clouds,

silently sweeping by on a billowing breeze.


Back down to earth, let’s take a walk outdoors.

But what should we wear? Wellington boots? A sun hat? Maybe a warm coat?
How do we know what the weather will be like today? Read and write poems and postcards, and, if you don’t like today’s 
weather report, why not write your own? Make a weather station to find out more about the weather in your area. What weather do you prefer? Sunshine, snow, storms or showers?

Get your wellies on – let’s go!

Splendid Skies Topic Web


To begin our Splendid Skies topic, Year 1 went on an amazing trip to Manchester Airport. During the day, we learnt all about the different roles of people working at the airport, got the chance to visit the inside of the flight deck, and even saw the fastest aeroplane in the world, Concorde! We had a wonderful day and we learnt so much about air travel, including how pilots train to fly, and how planes get tested before becoming passenger aeroplanes. We spotted lots of different aeroplanes taking off and landing on the runway, and even saw the world's largest plane in action. 


See below for some of the pictures taken during the day!
