Amazing Juniors In Elvington


 

We went inside an aeroplane! And we saw a biplane, and an airship and a hot air balloon. And a jet plane!” – Caroline Y1

Girls in Years 1 and 2 had an incredible adventure at the National Air Museum in Elvington, which the teachers said was possibly one of the best museum visits they’ve ever seen.

After a warm welcome, the girls enjoyed a short workshop on the history of flight. They were then treated to a guided tour of the museum with a team of superb guides.

We went looking around the Halifax bomber! We walked around the back, saw the birds, saw where the pilots sit, saw the bin and their toilet.” – Cecily

The airship had a hotel inside it!” – Isabel

The girls’ thinking adventures continue. In class, they are now learning about the lives of famous pilots, including Amelia Earhart and Amy Johnson.
