Last Friday Prep I enjoyed a trip to the Manchester Ringway Visitor Park as part of their topic on Flight.
The children were able to go into the ‘aeroplane classroom’ and learn about the different roles people have at the airport and on aeroplanes. They each had the opportunity to play at being pilots in the flight deck and also dressed up as air stewards, police officer, firefighters and airport ground staff.
They particularly enjoyed learning about how the airport staff scare away birds from the runway!
The children also had the opportunity to see Concorde up close and learn all about the fastest passenger plane in the world and got the chance to see inside some other old aircraft.
As always their behaviour and enthusiasm were a pleasure to see and they asked some excellent questions throughout the tour.
We finished off the day with a play at the play area whilst watching the planes take off and land a Manchester Airport.
A great day was had by all.
