Come Fly with Me
4th, 5th and 6th Primary
Come Fly with Me is about three great women who changed the world. Valentina Tereshkova the first woman in space, Trudie Ederle, the first women to swim the English Channel and Amy Johnson, the first woman to fly solo from London to Australia. We meet Valentina at school while she looks out of the window and wonders what it would be like to travel into space. We then meet Trudie on her first failed attempt and learn what we need to do when swimming the Channel. We follow her successful attempt and students join in asking her questions. We are then swept up in the air with Amy in her plane Jason. We fly to Australia, through all types of weather and over all kinds of terrain. Finally we are again with Valentina who is looking down from space and tell us how small and fragile the earth is.
Through the stories of these women we find out what they did, why they inspire us and what they taught us. Their amazing stories will promote your students curiosity, stimulate their spirit of adventure and make them reach for the stars!
Come Fly with Me was very suitable for my students and they loved Amy Johnson’s story.
Santa Coloma de Farners
My students enjoyed the performance and had a great time! I think it was great to represent biographies and use the past tense.
My students favourite part was Amy Johnson's story, they enjoyed a lot the conversations with her plane Jason. They also loved the moment with the teacher in Valentina's story.

The student workbook and teacher resources for Come Fly with Me is excellent and recommended to work with before the performance. In all my students were very happy.
