Year 1 had a fantastic day at the Visitor Runway Park at Manchester Airport on Monday. We learnt all about the different jobs that people do at the airport and took the controls on the flight deck to take off and land an aeroplane on imaginary journeys.

We saw the fastest aeroplane in the world, Concorde, but just missed seeing the biggest aeroplane in the world as it landed 15 minutes early!


We had an interesting afternoon investigating switches so that we know how to make our own when we make our torches.

Chinese lessons

We really enjoyed visiting North Chadderton School for Chinese lessons.  We learnt how to say ‘Hello, My name is …. and Goodbye’ Chloe, the teacher, then told us what our names are in Chinese and she then wrote it using calligraphy.  We can’t wait for next week.

A new baby!

We have been learning about the chronology of the royal family and have been excited to hear the news about the new royal baby. We made our own maps to send to the Queen so she can find her way to meet her new great grandson.


Year 1 had a great time talking to OAFC players last week. We asked them lots of questions then took park in their warm up! Some of us even went to the match on Saturday!
