The Big Day

After Jesus died, the disciples gathered together in Jerusalem for Pentecost, even though they didn't feel like celebrating.

The spirit came at Pentecost They stayed inside and behind locked doors. Suddenly a great wind swept through the room.

It was as if flame touched every person, they felt energised.

The Holy Spirit had come, just as Jesus promised.

As the disciples tumbled out into the street, people came to see what had happened.

Peter stood and told them about Jesus and that day thousands of people decided to follow Jesus.


A Grand Day Out

Do you like watching Wallace and Gromit?

Visit the moon Their first film was 'A Grand Day Out' where the pair had an adventure to the moon looking for cheese!

The characters and props are all modelled from clay.

It took director, Nick Park, nearly seven years to make the film, one frame at a time, stopping for each small movement the characters make.

It's 30 years since Wallace and Gromit had their grand day out.

What a day!

Have you travelled by airplane? Have you ever flown over the open sea? Or to America or Canada?

Vickers Vimy biplane

It's only 100 years since the first non-stop flight across the Atlantic. Captain John Alcock and Lieutenant Arthur Brown set off from New Foundland in the afternoon of 14 June 1919 and landed in a boggy field in Ireland the following day. They flew 1980miles in 16 hours 27 minutes.

Their craft was a biplane with an open cockpit. The Vickers Vimy had been designed for long distance flying during World War I.

The airplane was presented to the nation - you can see it at the Science Museum

They flew through thick fog, heavy cloud and sleet and hail. Snow filled the cockpit and Brown had to wing walk to keep filters clear of ice.
