Woodpeckers have been learning about Samuel Cody in their History lessons this term and with him in mind, the children have been making their own planes.
Samuel Cody was known as an early pioneer of manned flight. He began experimenting with man-lifting kites which led to him developing a kite-boat which he used to cross the English Channel in 1903. He later worked in collaboration with the Army on kites, balloons and aeroplanes.
As you can see, test flights took place this week and the children had lots of fun flying the planes they had made!
