In Term 2, Room 5 were learning about things that can fly. We were trying to find out how and why things fly. For this we looked at man made things like helicopters, planes, hot air balloons as well as living creatures like butterflies and bees. For experiment, we made paper spinners to show the importance of gravity in the journey of flight. This movie shows how we made the paper spinners and how we had fun with them. The children's pictures are also included in it. We hope you like our movie.
