For our March holiday excursion, Blossom Berrykidz visited Singapore Changi Airport to coincide with our holiday programme theme on ‘Community’.
At the airport, we experienced riding on the skytrains to travel from terminal to terminal. We also walked around the arrival and departure halls to be introduced to the procedures of checking-in for a flight. The teachers also introduced the many different occupations eg. air stewardess, pilots, check-in desk officer, money changer, etc. that can be found around the airport and also explained their roles and duties.
What did we learn from a trip to the airport? At the check-in counters, the children were introduced to the check-in desk officer and also observed and watched how the travellers check-in with their luggages and how luggages are being weighed. At the arrival hall, the children watched travellers waiting and collecting their luggages at the conveyor belts. At the departure hall, the children watched travellers bidding farewell to their friends and families.
An old time favourite with kids, we walked over to the Viewing Mall where we watched various planes land, taxi and take off. We compared the different plane sizes and airline logos while taking a break to rest our little feet and fill our tummies with snacks.
To end the day, we made a last stop to the indoor playground to have some fun and gross-motor excercise before heading back to school!
