Year 6

Duxford - Imperial War Museum


Last Friday, as part of their World War II History curriculum, Year 6 visited Duxford Air Museum. The children immersed themselves into the experience by dressing as evacuees, in clothes of the era. Many public visitors at the venue commented on how fantastic the children looked!

Year 6 loved the whole day, looking at all the exhibits of tanks, planes, trucks, uniforms and weapons, learning more and more about the war and what people went through at the time. 

Seeing a Spitfire and a Hurricane was amazing but there was all types of aircraft at the museum and the children even went inside Concorde!

The highlight of the day for many was seeing the planes and helicopters of World War II practising on the airfield, as Duxford was holding a special Battle of Britain event the following day.
