Continuing with our topic on ‘Transport’, this week your child will be learning about what happens at an airport. A number of the activities your child will complete will be based around travel, aeroplanes and other aspects of the airport. In order for your child to develop their understanding, please show them the videos on the website and the PowerPoint below. We have also attached some Airport Colouring sheets for your child to complete if they wish to do so.

People go to the airport to get on an aeroplane and travel to different countries. Most people travel on an aeroplane when they are going on holiday. Ask your child to imagine that they are going on holiday. Which country would they like to travel to? What do they think the weather will be like? Will it be hot or cold? What type of clothes would they need to pack? Encourage your child to 'pack' the most appropriate clothes for certain seasons of the year by cutting and sticking them onto the suitcase templates below.
Challenge: At the bottom of the suitcase template, ask your child to write a couple of sentences about where they would choose to go on holiday and what they would do whilst they were they.

Now that you have packed your suitcase and you’ve decided where you are going on your holiday, one of the documents you will need to have before you get on an aeroplane is a passport.
So what is a passport?
A passport is an important travel document which shows that a person is a citizen of a particular country. A passport allows a person to travel to different countries around the world. Passports contain the following information about a person:
Below you will find a passport template for your child to complete. There is space on the template for a passport photo or for a picture to be drawn as well as their name, signature, date of birth, gender, age, home country and description.

Once they’ve decided on a destination, explain to your child that they need one more document before they can travel on an aeroplane. This document is called a boarding pass.
So what is a boarding pass?
A boarding pass is a document provided by an airline company that allows you to board an aeroplane. It includes details like flight time, the departure and arrival destinations and your seat number. Once your child has completed adding these details to their boarding pass, encourage them to use their passport and boarding pass to act out an airport scenario. They could be the passenger to begin with, then they could swap roles and be the check-in assistant or flight attendant.
