The sky is the limit!

Yesterday, the Easton Royal Academy embarked on an educational journey to the Fleet Air Museum, an iconic institution celebrating aviation history and innovation. Nestled amidst the picturesque landscape, this excursion offered a unique opportunity to delve into the world of flight and discovery, linked to our KS1 History curriculum and the history of flight.

As we stepped into the museum, we were greeted by a breathtaking display of aircraft spanning various eras. From the iconic Spitfire to the cutting-edge jets of today, each aircraft told the history of flight. The sheer diversity of planes showcased the evolution of aviation technology, leaving us in awe.

Guided by knowledgeable museum staff, we embarked on a journey through time, tracing the milestones of aviation history. Interactive exhibits engaged our senses, allowing us to experience the thrill of flight first-hand. From cockpit simulations to virtual reality tours, every activity sparked our curiosity and ignited our imagination.

One of the highlights of our visit was the opportunity to learn about the brave men and women who shaped aviation history. Stories of daring pilots and groundbreaking engineers…  it was a reminder of the courage and dedication required to push the boundaries of human achievement.

As ever, the children behaved impeccably and took full advantage of the learning possibilities of the trip.  The experience left an indelible mark on our minds, it was a day out full of discovery, inspiration, and learning that will stay with us for years to come.  A big thank you to all the parents who came with us and made the day possible, it was lovely to have you on board.
