To introduce ourselves to Parker, we made hot air balloons with pictures of our favourite things on them.

One of Parker's fears is flying over water, as he might sink.  Boris the boat says that he can help by teaching Parker how to float.  We looked at different materials, predicted if they would float and then found out if we were right or wrong.

We then used this knowledge to decide on which material to make our own boats out of.  Finally testing them on water to see it they floated.  They did, few!

 

Parker was also scared of going fast.  We experimented how different materials travel faster and slower. 
We joined Troy the Train with Parker on a 'Magic train ride.'  We ordered the main parts of the story.  We also really enjoyed singing along!

Mabel the motor bike helped Parker to understand how to balance and turn.  We made our own obstacle courses to help us and Parker to practise.

To help keep Parkers energy up for his first flight, we baked him cookies.
