Welcome to Earhart class!
This year we are making the transition from the foundation stage to Key Stage One! We work hard as a team together to help each other learn and achieve our best.
We take pride in our classroom, it is full of exciting challenges including our writing area where we can often be found writing letters to our travelling class bear. We love to put on plays in our role play area and we like to show our teachers how fantastic we are with numbers in our interactive mathematics area.
We love our sticker charts, we can earn stickers for good sitting on the carpet, trying really hard with our work and helping others. When we fill up our sticker charts we get to choose a fantastic prize from the special sparkly box!
Our class is named after Amelia Earhart, we think she is very courageous and we aim to achieve like her by persevering with our goals just as she did.
Amelia Earhart was born in 1897. During World War 1 Amelia worked for the Red Cross, she met many pilots and after a plane ride in 1920 she knew she had to fly. She worked hard doing many different jobs, persevering to save enough money to have flying lessons. She became the 16th woman to be issued a pilots license. Amelia had several notable flights, she became the first woman to fly across the Atlantic Ocean and the first person to fly over both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. Amelia decided that she wanted to fly around the world from the equator. This was to be her final flight, as during this venture in 1937 her plane disappeared. Exactly what happened to Amelia Earhart is still unknown today.
