More than 30 pupils from Kingswood School in Bath learned the sky is the limit when they visited the City of Bath College’s aircraft cabin.
The pupils boarded a “flight” to Australia, clutching their hand-made passports and boarding passes, and listened to a safety demonstration before “take-off”.
The visit to the college’s travel and tourism department marked the start of the children’s “around the world in 80 days” project, which includes learning about the cultures and national dishes of different countries.
Becci Howe, head of key stage 1 at Kingswood, said: “It’s a great real life experience for the children.
“Some of them have never been on a plane before and they really did think they were flying somewhere.”
