Flying High

Flying High at The Ryleys School, A Private School In Alderley Edge, CheshireFlying High

Our Year 2 pupils were thrilled to get up close to a fantastic helicopter and its pilot, Niamh W’s father, as it landed on The Ryleys School playing fields.

Pupils asked lots of questions and learnt that, unlike an aeroplane, a helicopter can fly straight up and down, sideways or backwards.

It can also spin around or hover motionless in the air. They also generate a lot of wind and are pretty noisy!

What an incredible opportunity for our pupils. Perhaps we’ve inspired a few pilots of the future.

Thank you to all involved in organising this special event, especially Mr Wood.
