Manchester Airport 2022
Lower Primary and year 6 went to Manchester Airport to experience what the different jobs are like and to explore the AeroZone. The children were given old artefacts which were used in airports many years ago and were asked to guess what they were used for. Then the children were given time to go round and play in different areas, pretending to work in the airport. The children got the chance to check bags in, operate security, service passengers on the plane and actually fly the plane! Two firemen came to speak to us about their jobs and let the children dress up and try their uniforms on. To finish the day, we ventured out into Terminal 2 and saw all of the different jobs in action.
