The Nursery children have enjoyed an amazing day visiting Rochester Airport and Pets@home
in Chatham. At the airport we were taken on a tour of the Control Tower, the hangers and we were able to look closely at many of the aircraft. We saw planes, autogiros, helicopters and a microlight take off and land. The children noticed that the planes were all different, with wheels and lights in different places. The discovered that the petrol is stored in the wings and that some planes can land on water. They saw propellers with two and three blades and counted how many planes were in the hangar. The children were able to sit in the cockpit of one of the light aircraft, it was very exciting!
Four of our parents were given a surprise when a pilot offered to take them on a short flight. They flew over the school and back to the airport.
