This week we are continuing to learn about types of travelling for our learning project Tremendous Travel. 

This weeks next form of transport is airplanes

Our story this week is Amazing airplanes by Tony Mitton 

Follow the you tube link to hear the story being read. 


Communication and language


Ask these questions and encourage your child to answer in full sentences

Have you been on a plane before?

Where did you go?

Where would you like to go on holiday?

At the end of the book where could the airplane have landed?


You could play airport bingo

You could either watch the 'Amazing Airplane' story and see if you can get a line on the bingo board.


You could write the pictures on pieces of paper and pick them out of a hat and see who is the first to get a line on the bingo board. 



You could make a bingo board up yourself and draw pictures of what you think you will see in an airport. 

Physical Development 


Pencil control 

Try using the correct pencil grip and letter formation to write these airplane words. 



Movement Cube 

In the document link below is how to make a movement cube (like a dice) and on each of the sides are different ways you could move like a plane or an helicopter. You roll the cube like a dice to see what movement you need to perform. Maybe you can make one and make up a routine. 



In the document below is a short story called 'My new plane'

Read this with your child and then ask the 3 questions afterwards. 

The 3 questions are comprehension questions to help them understand what they had just heard.

Draw a picture on the front and write what you could have done on your holiday on the back, don’t forget to say ‘wish you were here’

The World 


Pick a destination and record in any way you want why you would like to travel there and who with.
