We then used this knowledge to decide which material to use to make our own boats. Finally, we tested them on water to see it they floated. They did, few!
Parker was also scared of going fast. So we met Troy the Train, who loves to go fast. He taught parker about how much fun could be had by going fast by taking us on a magical train ride.
Then in science, we conducted experiments to see how different materials travel faster and slower.
Parker was also worried about balancing and turning whilst flying. So we met Mable the Motor Bike.
She helped Parker to understand how to balance and turn.
We made our own obstacle courses to help us and Parker to practise. We also had lots of fun practising our balancing and turning skills on the obstacle course.
Parker is now worried about the passengers on board and wants to keep them safe. Cassie the Car is happy to share her knowledge with Parker. She tells him all about seatbelts and gives him lots of safety tips.
Parker is starting to feel much more confident about his first flight thanks to all our help but he is now worries about getting lost! Jeffery introduces us all to Bruce the Bus. Bruce is an expert at navigating along roads and finding his way. Bruce shows Parker (and us) how use a map to find your way.
Parker is feeling confident to fly now but he would like to just have a try of going up in the air with someone holding his hand, (or wing as he is a plane!). Jeffery has a super idea, he asks Hallie the Helicopter to lift Parker in to the air and then lower him back down, so he knows what it feels like.
Hallie is more than happy to help but is worries that it might be too windy.
We make wind socks so that Hallie can see which direction and how fast the wind is blowing.
Hallie says they are great and takes Parker up into the air.
Parker was now ready for his first flight. We had a special day when we joined Parker on his first flight.
