Welcome to Year 3
Our classes are called Earhart and Wright, they are pioneers of the sky who inspired change. There is lots of exciting learning planned for this year and we can't wait to fly high!
Wright Class is actually named after two people: Orville and Wilbur Wright. They invented, built and flew the world's first successful motor-operated airplane. Despite numerous challenges throughout their lives, the Wright brothers should a great deal of perseverance to achieve this goal. After multiple attempts at trying to build something that flew (starting off with a kite), they reflected on and improved their design to enable an airplane to fly with an engine.
Earhart Class is named after an amazing woman called Amelia Earhart. She enjoyed adventures and at a young age she fell in love with the idea of flying. Earhart was not an expert flyer to begin with, she had to do lots of practice flights! Eventually, she became the first female to fly solo over the Atlantic Ocean. In her life many people told Earhart that she could not achieve her dreams, she did not let this stop her completing some adventurous challenges. She went on to inspire others to work hard towards their own adventures and dreams.
