After reading 'Leonardo and the Flying Boy', Class 1 did their own pencil self-portraits in the style of Leonardo da Vinci.  First of all, they investigated different grades of pencils. Here are some of the portraits.

Captain Rigden's Visit

Captain Rigden's Visit 1
As an entry point for our class theme of 'Up, Up and Away', Captain Rigden, an airline pilot, visited our class.  The day before his visit, we tracked his progress on a flight from Spain.  Unfortunately, Captain Rigden was unable to land his plane on the school field as many of the children had hoped!  He was, however, able to answer our many questions and tell us lots of interesting facts.  The children all remembered to give him a big 'Thank you!' for giving up his time.
