With our pilots still grounded, our beautiful big red balloons packed away and many of our office staff educating their own little heros at home, we're really enjoying our balloon themed projects for kids (and hope you are too).
Coronavirus is well and truly keeping us grounded at the moment but that doesn't mean we can't still dream big. All of us are dreaming of a better time and what we can look forward to.
This week, our kids' English activity worksheet is about stirring their imagination and keep their young minds 'flying high'.
The imagination is a powerful tool in learning and can also help with expressing and processing emotions.
So in the current situation, we're finding it is so important to keep everyone's imagination stimulated, including those of our own children.
Our imaginations and daydreams are currently taking us off on our next aviation adventure, floating somewhere above the Lake District or over the stunning Peak District on a majestic and serene hot air balloon ride.
English Activity - Storyboard Writing
This week's English activity worksheet is a colourful storyboard based around a dream hot air balloon flight setting.
Click here to download and print your own copy of the storyboard above and fill in the clouds to create your own short story with characters, an opening, main event etc.
What will yours be about?
Maybe you could write a story about your dream balloon ride...
Or an event at school...
Or anything else in the universe that your imagination leads you to...
Once you've finished the activity, you can ask your grown up to share a picture of your work on our social media channels, using #hereismyballoon.
