The day we met a pilot

Date: 22nd May 2019 @ 5:19pm

On Tuesday we went on 'holiday'. We went to Barrow airport where we had our bags weighed, scanned and received our boarding passes after having our passports checked. We then went through security and put our bags in the baggage area. The flight attendant showed us to our seats and did a safety demonstration. Then we met the pilot (thank you Mr Maclean!) who taught us lots about how aeroplanes work and what it is like to be a pilot. Throughout the day we participated in all sorts of fun activities including trying on uniform, testing life jackets, flying our own paper aeroplanes and taking novelty photographs. What a fun way to engage in our topic of transport.
