Last week saw the first of this term’s KS1 Educational Visits.
Miss Lauren describes the highlights:
Last week two very excited group of Year 2 students, parents and teachers boarded buses in preparation for ‘take off’ to the Royal Thai Air-Force Museum as part of their Transport topic.
Upon arrival, the children were given a tour around the aircraft hanger and had the opportunity to climb aboard some of the helicopters and sit in the pilot's chair - a fantastic opportunity to really bring our topic to life.
Next, our guide explained all about how The Royal Thai Air-Force fighter jets had played a part in Thai history. We were shown a short video of fighter jets swooping through the skies. The children were very impressed with the fighter jets’ aerial acrobatics.
After that, the children took a walk through the ‘history of flight’ looking at air-crafts from other counties and were able to see the parts of an aeroplane engine up close.
The children (and teachers) very much enjoyed seeing all the different aeroplanes, helicopters and other aviation equipment displayed at the museum. We would like to say a big thank you to all of the helpers and the staff at the museum for a wonderful trip.
