English: View from the cockpit

Question time!

Have you ever been on a plane? If so, can you describe what it feels like?

If you have not, can you use your imagination to describe what it might be like?

What other modes of transport have you been on? Which was your favourite/least favourite?

Is there a mode of transport you would like to experience in the future?

How do you think the world was different before flying was invented?

How do you think transport will change in the future?


Perfect picture!

Can you design your own mode of transport? It could be used in the past, present or future.


Story starter!

“There is no better feeling in the world than being up here” the pilot thought to himself. He pressed a series of buttons, ensuring the aircraft was on the right course, and sat back in his seat to enjoy the view. The sight that met his eyes never ceased to amaze him, no matter how many times he had done this flight…

Can you describe what you could see if you looked out of the cockpit window?

Alternatively, you could write a description of what it feels like to fly?

You could even write a story in the first person as the plane itself, embarking on an exciting journey.


Creative Activities:

In America on 8th June 2020 it is Best Friend’s Day. I thought it might be nice for you to think about your best friend/s this week as you might not have been them for quite a while.

Can you draw a picture of them/write a poem about them/create a poster to celebrate why they are your best friend/write a letter to them.  You might wish to do something else about them which is absolutely fine. All that is important is that you spend time thinking about your best friend and celebrating what makes them such an amazing friend.

I can’t wait to see your amazing work.


Topic: Summer

This week we are going to continue with our topic of Summer. How did you get on with creating some Summer art work?

This week I would like to research a place/country you would like to visit if you could this Summer. It would be great if you could produce a leaflet/booklet all about your chosen place and it could then be used to encourage other people to visit your chosen place.

I look fowards to seeing what research you have completed and if you send your work to me I will publish it on the blog.


Have an amazing week and I will see you all soon. Mrs E Barr x
