Years 4 and 5 each had a half-day science workshop led by Adam Nieman with help from volunteer Kayvon Barad on 17 September.
Years 5 and 6 each had a creative writing workshop in November with poet Claire Williamson and Airbus volunteer Adam Fallon. Here are two of the group poems they created.
I'm sat shaking as the passengers climb aboard,
Headache, sickness, feeling nervous.
My organs stabbed with women's spiky heels.
Stop! Where am I going?
I'm seriously scared.
Stop! What am I doing?
Who are these people?
My heart starts; I shudder towards the runway.
Hear the pounding beat as I creep with my feet.
Thrusting boom, butterflies in my stomach
My arms ache at this deadly weight.
Help! No turning back now.
I'm seriously upset.
Help! Why did I start this?
I'll never make it!
As my legs lift into the air,
everything in my tummy settles
I'm in the sky, feeling like a hero.
I can see the beautiful world around me
I can taste the fresh air as I glide
I can hear the birds singing
as they try to catch me
I can smell the cold in my engines
I feel alive in the morning sky.
Since the Dawn of Time
Since the dawn of time, people have wanted to fly
Wanted to fly, but the sky was too high
The Wright brothers made the first powered plane
Then people started to try again and again
Bright George White made the Boxkite
The Bristol Aeroplane Company took flight
The fastest plane was Concorde
Pointing people to go abroad
The Brabazon was the biggest of them all
It was huge and pretty cool
The A380 is a double-decker
And that is how it's bigger and better
Airbus has grown great and strong
If you want to see for yourself, just pop along!
