Year 1 set off an adventure to the Runway Visitor Park at Manchester Airport to learn all about the world of aviation. We were taken on a guided tour of the Runway Park: learning about the different parts of the aircraft, how the runway works and top tips for aeroplane spotting! The highlight for most was the opportunity to sit on board a Monarch airline plane. Through role play and costumes, we learnt about the roles of the crew and the behind the scenes preparation that takes place. In small groups, the children were then invited into the flight deck, learning about what it takes to be a real life pilot! We finished the day at the viewing deck, just in time to see the Emirates airbus take off! A fabulous day to enrich our ‘All Aboard’ topic!
