As an introduction to our new topic, we held an ‘Airport Day’ last week. Children were checked in as they arrived at school and were given a boarding pass and identity card. They then boarded the plane, watched an in-flight safety video and even had refreshments. We eventually landed safely at our destination, Sydney, Australia.
We talked about Australia and its territories, and then labelled them on a map. We learned a few Australian words and we ended the day by making Aussie sun hats, corks and all! (Thank you for all the cork donations!)
The children had a brilliant day, as did the staff!
