RAF trip

Years 5 and 6 had a fantastic time at the RAF museum. The air raid workshop was brilliant - it was very interactive and the children really enjoyed learning about life in London during the Blitz. The simulation air raid was a very realistic experience which helped them think through what it might have been like. It was great to be able to spend time in the museum afterwards and find out about such a great variety of WW1 and 2 planes. Here are a few thoughts from some of the Year 6 children: 

"I really enjoyed when the air raid siren sounded and we had to hide in the air raid shelter." Faithia

"I liked trying on the RAF uniforms and finding out what the different symbols on the coats stood for." Kitty

"I found the workshop about life in London during the Blitz really interesting. I thought it was fun learning through role play." Lara

"I liked seeing all the planes. I particularly liked going in the WW1 hanger and seeing the triplanes." Moses

"I loved seeing all the different types and sizes of planes." Vicky

"The films were thrilling and fact-filled and I've learnt lots more about the Blitz." Max

"I enjoyed being able to walk under the planes and reading the signs and learning what they had been used for." Dom
