Super Spitfires by Rosie Morrogh Bernard P7

This week we have completed our super Supermarine Spitfires, we had to paint our spitfires. First we had to paint the underside of the plane light blue and above dark blue and green. After we stuck the circles with British colours on, we went on the internet to search how planes flew. I paired up with Rebecca and we found the answer quite quickly on google, the answer is; speed, weight, aerodynamics and lift on the wings. The next day I got a fright when Mr Whatley had hung the planes to the ceiling! When Rowena sat up from her chair she hit her head on the plane above her, I don’t want to lie but I did giggle a bit.

I have definitely upgraded my confidence, when I did my Anne Frank presentation, I felt really nervous when everyone was looking at me but I knew I had to do it just like everyone else. I was relieved to know that I was up there for under 5 minutes. Earlier this week I also had to say a sentence in front of assembly about my presentation ( it was not as bad as I thought.) I’m glad I’m working on building confidence because this time last year I would never have even thought about speaking in front of the class.
