Year 6 have started our World War Two topic with a visit to IWM Duxford. The children started their day exploring the land warfare museum, where they were immersed in the events of the D Day Landings. This was followed by a visit to the American Air Museum, where we learnt about American troops who came over and were based at Duxford to help the allied forces as well as some quite impressive airplanes. After a lovely lunch outside, we explored the Battle of Britain, looking at Hawker Hurricane’s and German Messerschmitt planes, which were well know for their ‘dogfights’ in the sky. The children were so well behaved and represented Kings Road with impeccable manners across the day. On Thursday, the children returned to school using what they had learnt to analyse some primary historical sources including pilots log books, audio recordings of Lancaster bomber crews and interviews with RAF pilots to discover more about the Battle of Britain.
