The Airport

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.

The Airport resource pack is free to download for our Imagination in Action email newsletter subscribers. The pack is a digital resource and it will be emailed to you when you sign up. You can download it, save it and print it as and when you need. Once you have signed up you will receive an email with the English and Irish language pdf resources, if you do not receive an email please check your spam/junk mail. To make sure you receive information about future free resources please add us to your contacts list in your email.

Our printable Airport pack includes lots of resources so that you can easily set up an Airport dramatic-play area of your own. In addition to the “I am a…” theme poster there is another large format poster, Welcome to the Airport that can be used to designate a specific role-play area. The pdf includes A4 posters for the walls to designate different areas such as the check-in desks or the departure gates. We have included plenty of mark-making and writing opportunities with boarding cards, and of course, preflight checklists. The personalisable Pilot Name Badges can be filled in and attached to a lanyard so that everyone knows just who is in charge.

Props for dramatic-play

We always recommend using real-life and authentic props whenever possible. In the case of the Pilot you can set up an area quite easily with a desk and chair for a check in area, bags and baggage, travel brochures, maps, clocks and of course a clipboard for checklists. Everything you need in terms of forms, signs and posters are in the pdf pack.
