Up Up and Away

Year 2 Hot Air Balloon Visit

On Wednesday the 20 November 2019, Year 2 were lucky enough to have a visit from Virgin balloon company. 

Mark who is a hot air balloon pilot, showed us how the burners worked. It was amazing how much  heat they gave off and certainly warmed us up on a chilly morning.


We spoke about James Sadler the first English balloonist and Mark was very impressed that the children knew about this unsung local hero.

The highlight for the children was the moment they were allowed to clamber into the basket and imagine that we were flying over the school.
