RAF Hendon Trip
On a fact finding mission for their studies on World War 2, Year 5 girls visited the Royal Air Force Museum, Hendon earlier this week. As well as looking around the museum, the pupils took part in an activity where they made a gas mask case, handled air raid related objects from WW2, and tried on authentic WW2 RAF uniform.
They also took part in a classroom experience where they learnt what it was like to be educated during the war and experienced some of the key differences, including being taught by stricter teachers!
Sophie Philp, Year 5 teacher, said:
“The trip was designed to develop the pupils’ understanding of the events of the Battle of Britain and the Blitz, to see the planes that were used and learn more about them. The girls had a wonderful day and even wore period dress to the museum for the full experience!”
