Local School Children Check In to Tresham Airways
On Tuesday 21st April approximately 60 school children aged 5 and 6 from Kettering Science Academy took a trip to Tresham to see the plane fuselage and take part in activities arranged by our students. Our Care and Early Years students were involved in planning the activities and the tour of the plane by presenting their ideas to their fellow students. During the visit, the students worked with the young children and helped them create aeroplanes, pictures and baggage out of different types of material.
To finish off the day, all the children were involved in a collective picture in which they each added their unique touch using glitter, glue, paint, and buttons.
On the plane, the KSA visitors were able to take a look in the cockpit and have a picture taken sat in the pilot’s seat. They were treated to a re-enactment of the health and safety flight procedures and opted for water and fresh fruit snacks from the inflight meal trolley.
Sarah Nolan, Head of School for Care and Early Years said
“It was great to have the children from KSA today. The opportunity to work with a variety of different professionals in different contexts allows us to observe our students in different ways and give them practical guidance and support. The students had the opportunity to develop their team working skills by collaborating across all levels. An event like this encourages the students to see the benefits of holistic activities in play and development of young children. They managed to plan a variety of activities beyond the tour of the plane including; making luggage tags, junk model planes and discussing different holiday destinations”.
