Keeping in line with the high flying standards of KES, I have decided to run an Aerospace Society for pupils who quite literally want to fly high. After recently graduating as the youngest ever Qualified Aerospace Instructor, I have decided to share my knowledge by creating a society to keep students stimulated during lockdown.
I am very passionate about aviation and have been a cadet with the Royal Air Force Air Cadets for three years. Aerospace Society is suitable for students of all years interested in aviation or aeronautical engineering. We will be covering the following topics: aerodynamics, airmanship, air navigation, aircraft handling, air traffic control and air power.
The Society will be conducted over Google Meets where I will be delivering half an hour sessions every Tuesday at 12.15. Any students interested can find the Google Classroom code on the appropriate Firefly page. I hope you will come along to find out more information about this unique group. ️
During this period of lockdown, Birdwatching Club is still going strong. Rather than all coming together to see wildlife, we continue to spot nature in our different local areas. We have a Google Classroom up and running to report our recent sightings and on a Friday morning, a brilliant quiz is put up by Mr Porter.
This time of year is nesting season and so garden birds, like tits and finches, are flocking to feeders and we are still looking for our first swallows of the year. Recently, Devan Naidu spotted a Muntjac Deer and Arjun Reddy-Kolanu has coal tits and blue tits nesting in his garden. If you would like to join us and share your own images please join our Google Classroom using the details that can be found on the appropriate Firefly page.
