Flying Concord

Delta wing, canard, flypaper, classroom cruiser..............these are unfamiliar names to many but not to our children who are passionate about paper planes and flight. Over the last week we have been learning to make our own paper planes - following step-by-step instructions. What a sense of achievement as the finished planes are put to the test and fly across the outdoor area (some even over the fence) It is great to share in the enthusiasm of the children as they explore maths concepts and colour, listen to and follow instructions, problem solve and learn about spatial awareness and conversations about flight............................ how we can fly (hot air balloon, rocket, plane, helicopter, paragliding..) and where we could fly to (moon, planets, Australia, Singapore, Auckland, Christchurch....) Let's see where this leads to next!
