Excitement was building on Monday and Tuesday as the children learnt about the history of aviation as well as modern passenger planes and fighter jets. On Wednesday everybody was delighted to see a beautiful blue sky and a fantastic day was enjoyed by all. After an hour long journey in which the children were busy spotting various forms of transport the convoy of year two classes arrived at the museum which is to the north of Beijing. On arrival the children were impressed by the initial array of passenger planes but this was only a taste of what was to come. Throughout the day the children went on to see a wide range of military and civilian aircraft. The children were amazed by some of the strange sizes and shapes of the airplanes and also at how small some of the more modern fighter jets are. One of the most popular planes was one that had a shark painted along its side and nosecone. Alongside aircraft, the museum also displayed military tanks and missiles which the children were also very interested in. Whilst at the museum each class behaved fantastically well and were wonderful role models for BSB. Following on from the trip each child went on to write a recount of the day and a selection of these can be found on display along the Year 2 corridor.
