This year’s Science Week theme of “Flight” has been a huge success and the children have really “taken off” and “flown” with the idea. We had a visit from Wheatley Birds of Prey where the children were able to have a close look at some amazing birds. The John Hampden wildlife were looking a little nervous at times! The firm favourite of the children was the Peregrine Falcon. The peregrine is renowned for its speed, reaching over 320 km/h (200 mph) during its characteristic high-speed dive, making it the fastest member of the animal kingdom!
The paper airplane completion was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the children learnt some new folding skills. They especially enjoyed testing out their designs! On the Friday the winning children were able to display the winning designs in assembly.
