Hot Air Balloon At Our School!

Yesterday we were VERY lucky to have Whiskey the Hot Air Balloon come to Pukete School.

At 12.00 it was spitting and a bit windy so we were very worried the balloon would not come!  At 12.15 Mr Oliver said they were going to give it a go so all the school went out to the field.  We watched the balloon be filled first, with a fan blowing air and then with hot air from the propane burners.  The noise was very loud like a WOOSH!  The hot air had nowhere to go so it made the balloon fill up and rise up!   Mr Oliver went in the balloon!

We have learnt a lot about balloons and made this chart before we went out to see the balloon. 


  1. I love your big hot air balloons.

  2. WOW!!! This is amazing! I haven't even seen one in real life! We think that is very cool and wish we could have a hot air balloon come to our school.
