Mrs Chapman-Brown: May 2015
We've had a very exciting week in Base 2!!
Yesterday we travelled all the way to Cape Town in Africa!
Thank you to all the mums and dads who supported the children and helped to make the day so enjoyable and memorable.
The eager passengers waited patiently as they started to Check In and receive their boarding cards and have their passports checked. This was efficiently done by our amazing air stewardesses, Mrs Goodwin and Mrs Parsons. Then it was off to Security to have suitcases checked and answer some security questions. ( Thank you to the children who helped in Base 5)
Passengers remained happy and calm as they boarded the aeroplane and looked for their seat numbers. The Captain and co- pilot greeted them as they arrived. Mrs Goodwin stepped in to the breach once again and gave an important safety talk, checked seat belts and then we were ready for Take Off. Soon we were cruising at 32 000 feet — a nice smooth flight with very little turbulence — despite the plane being put on auto pilot a number of times!! The in flight meal was served and it was all over too quickly. We arrived safely in Cape Town ready for a day of exciting activities — weaving, baking chapatis, making clay animals and designing some lovely African necklaces. The children also joined in with singing African songs and playing African instruments.
I t was a fabulous day and thank you also to Mrs Greenhough and Mrs Peek for their help too.
Have a wonderful weekend and I look forward to out next exciting visit — a little nearer home this time!
Mrs Chapman-Brown and Mrs Everall
