26th May – Paper Aeroplane Day

Additional ACTIVITY SHEET IN YOUR PACK – O wing glider instructions
More info for parents about O wings

Have fun today making different aeroplanes, investigate different types of paper and card, use old bits of wallpaper, card from food packets etc. In your pack you have some paper and card/paperclips. Sometimes you need to think about the nose weight – use paper clips , bluetac or plasticine to add weight to the nose.

REMEMBER safety when you fly them – don’t fly towards others. See which plane flies the furthest, straightest etc. This weblink gives step by step instructions to make lots of different types of planes at varying difficulty levels
