Air Raid in Year 6

On Tuesday, Mr Smith bombed the hangers we had constructed to protect our carefully constructed model Airfix spitfires.  He asked us to place our hanger on a target, to place our model inside the hanger and then he dropped two 100g bombs on top of the hanger from a height of 2 metres.  Here is the Year 6 Nessfield Spitfire squadron 2011.

Here are clips of 4 of the “air raids”.  Click on the word in bold to view the video.

    I think it was a realy good idea to make identical aircraft fighters from world war two because now I know what they looked like and I think it’s a realy good way to re-enact the build of the aircraft fighters.

  28. Bradley on said:

    That sounds awesome I hope I get to do it!

  29. Making the hangers was the worst bit of this topic because we didnt have hot glue guns so we had 2 use normal glue so the posts wouldnt stand up :( :(
