In the Spring Term our class topic was ‘Planes, Trains and Automobiles’. Linking in with this topic we went on a trip to Manchester Airport. We had a fantastic day and got so much out of our educational visit. Firstly we were lucky enough to have a tour of Terminal 2. We visited Arrivals and Departures, we checked in at the checking desk using a passport and learnt about the bar codes placed on our suitcases that have all our information on and where we are travelling to. We enjoyed watching planes take off to various countries as we ate lunch. We even got to see the largest Double Decker plane land, this has a restaurant, shop and showers on for people flying first class. In the afternoon we had the opportunity to visit the cockpit and sit in the pilots’ seat, this was so much fun! We also got to dress up and learnt about the many important jobs within the airport. It was such a fun day enjoyed by all.
