The Airport

Children just love the heading off exploring new countries and now you can do that without leaving home. Let your little Pilot take you on an adventure and explore new countries together. Our authentic Pilot uniform makes the trip realistic. To make dramatic-play even more immersive our Airport pdf’s, available in Irish or English make it easy to set up your own Airport at home or in the classroom.

Our large format “I am a….”poster is designed to introduce the vocabulary around the theme of The Airport where children can discuss the theme. Character Traits flash-cards can be added to the poster to encourage children to think about and identify the behaviours that they expect from a Pilot. The “I use..” flash-cards help to introduce some new vocabulary; and the blank cards can be used to scribe the roles and responsibilities that the children consider part of a Pilots’s job.
