On 28th June 2011, Year 6 visited RAF Duxford as part of their topic on World war 2 and Britain since 1948.
The weather looked threatening, but we continued regardless. The classes travelled the site independently of each other, but both groups covered the same activities.
The Homefront talk was a fascinating insight into lives of children during World War 2. We learnt about fashion, evacuation, music from the time, rationing and how to extinguish an incendiary bomb!
We visited Hanger 4, and looked at the war machines from the 1940s and how people lived during the war. Then we went to the Land Warfare hanger and looked at the D day landings.
A walk through Concorde was a treat, as were the interactive displays that allowed the children to explore the physics of flight.
