Pre-School Pilots

Little Adventurers and Reception had a fabulous trip to Leeds Bradford Airport last week. We were made to feel very welcome at the ‘Multiflight Café’ where we were treated to milk, water and biscuits on arrival!

We sat and watched a large aircraft take off and land and we talked excitedly about holidays – where we had been and where we are going. Then the staff at the flying school took us into a restricted area where we were able to sit in some of the little planes. We could use the controls and pretend to be pilots! We were a lot nearer to the runway then and so the planes landing seemed to be very close. When we visited the hangar, we loved seeing the police helicopters.

Our teachers said we were all very polite as we spoke to the pilots. We told them we were ‘very impressed’! Maybe some of us will become pilots one day!

Pre-School have been learning all about travel and holidays this term. Thank you to staff at Leeds Bradford Airport for making us feel so welcome and taking us on this extraordinary trip!
