Activity of the Week – Paper Planes

This week marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day when hostilities in Europe ended during WW2.

WW2 marked the first time that entire battles had been fought in the air.

As a family activity this week have a go at making paper planes; download our fact sheet for making a very simple paper plane here. Google ‘simple paper planes’, there are lots of different designs and ideas. Make some different designs and decorate them then have a family challenge to see which design can fly the furthest. Send us pictures of your completed planes to
