Discover more about these activities

Our colourful posters, ‘High in the sky!’ and ‘A bird’s-eye view’ are brilliant resources to support these activities. Extend ‘Flying high’ into small world play using ‘A bird’s-eye view’ airport mat or explore ‘High in the sky’ hot air balloons (and play the interactive rhyme , too). The ‘I spy… in the sky’ activity cards will provide inspiration for more designing and making, and encourage children to be more aware of other forms of transport. ‘Parachute bear’ from our web resource bank needs help to get back down to ground – so why not have a go at making him a parachute, too?
