On Wednesday the Swans went to Birmingham Airport. First, we went by coach to the international train station and caught the monorail. We all managed to get in to one car. The mono rail zipped along the track and we were able to see into the distance.
When we got the airport we had to walk up lots and lots of stairs to the flight school. From there we could see for miles. The airport was very busy. We could see planes taking off, landing, refuelling and being cleaned.
Next we went for a walk to the outside viewing area. We could see and hear the aeroplanes taking off and landing. It was very noisy!
Then we went back to the flight school. We drew pictures of the airplanes we could see from the windows.
When we had finished our pictures it was time for lunch.
After lunch we had a quick game of duck, duck, goose as the adults tidied up. Then we went on a scavenger hunt. We had to find a pilot, an air steward, passengers, escalators, baggage/ check in, the arrivals board, a bus and the airport sign to name just a few. We ticked the things we found on our sheet.
We also found Brum the car at the airport.
Before long it was time to get back on the monorail to the coach and then on the coach back to school. It was a tiring day, but we had fun!
