On 25 May 2017 Year 5 visited the RAF Museum in Hendon as part of their history studies.
‘It was amazing to see a real Spitfire and Messerschmitt up close. I thought the German planes were going to be huge but I can see why the Spitfire helped us in the Battle of Britain,’ said Lucas.
The children experiences life as a World War ll child, from the 1940s, using quill pens, blotting paper and even hiding under the desks to escape the bombings. It was very realistic. Alex was even caned for playing on a bomb site and he blamed his friends for joining him!
The children learned so much at the museum, which is being refurbished for the centenary of the Air Force, it helped make their studies come to life.
