Bursting with props and great ideas to bring Pulham’s local airship history alive.

Retell the airship station’s history — dressing up clothes and a toy cat are included in the pack to help children recreate the R34’s famous transatlantic flight with a furry stowaway!

Key themes include:

  • How the station was a centre for innovation and experiments in parachuting, photography, weather forecasting and aircraft release technology
  • The activities support a range of curriculum topics. For example, combining the airship station’s parachute development with Year 5’s topic of gravity, forces and resistance. The kit bag props bring added interest to activities
