Year 4 had a wonderful airport day. During the day, the children designed their own logos for an airline and created an advert so they could use their persuasive techniques in order to sell tickets! They were given airport codes from around the world and tried to work out which cities these codes applied to and then used atlases to find their grid references.
As part of our Erasmus project, year 5 have been designing their very own “In-Flight Meal” for an airline to promote. We decided to create a healthy option for passengers to enjoy, with a set menu that could be selected during any flight. The idea of these menus is to promote the importance of nutrition and a balanced diet with a range of healthy eating. Well done Year 5!
Year 5 felt it was really important for us to know exactly where our Erasmus partners lived in Europe. We used grid referencing on a map of Europe to locate all of the schools from our project. We then took this information and cross referenced it with atlas work to locate the specific towns. Finally, we then researched different flight paths between all of these placing, we discovered that most routes would have to go through Paris or Amsterdam airports before arriving at their final destination. Well done Year 5!
Wow! What a fantastic day we’ve had in school today. There were so many different outfits and the creativity was brilliant. We had a great take-off, in-flight entertainment and finally a superb landing. A huge thank you from Stella Airways for making Airport day a great success.
