Leonardo Da Vinci and the Wright Brothers

In our topic lessons we were investigating the history of flight. First, we looked at the flying machines that Leonardo Da Vinci created. We then had the challenge of creating our own parachutes! We then looked at how the first engine operated plane came about. We looked at the life of the Wright Brothers. We then had the difficult task of designing and building our own planes using card. We then tried to fly our aeroplanes outside, some with great success!
