Last Thursday, all KS1 children came into school dressed in flowery shirts, swimming shorts and flip flops accompanied with their suitcases. As they entered school, they soon realised that their classrooms were no longer classrooms; they had been transformed into departure lounges ready to jet off to the Caribbean!
Throughout the day the children had to check in with their passports and boarding passes, experience the thrill of take-off and flying to and from the Caribbean (complete with in-flight entertainment and food!), leave their luggage in hotel rooms and have time to relax on the beach and chill by the pool! Mysteriously, all KS1 teachers and TA’s had disappeared all day and were instead replaced by Captains, Flight Attendants and Holiday reps!
It was a fantastic day and a wonderful learning experience to prepare us for our ‘Holidays’ topic this half term. Do you remember when you flew to the Caribbean in KS1? If so, what was your favourite part of the day?
