Cedar & Birch Trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum

After all the snow melted away Cedar and Birch visited Duxford Imperial War Museum, Cambridge  and saw all their previous class learning on WWII come to life.

The morning was spent researching a myriad of  wonderful aeroplanes from different eras whilst completing a transport trail activity with great gusto and interest. They were guided around the Air Space Hanger by two very knowledgeable volunteers who answered all their questions with a wealth of information and took very good care of us all. The children experienced what it was like to travel on the Concorde and on a 1950's Jumbo Jet by being able to board these two planes and take a close look at the dial-covered cockpit. Several Rolls Royce engines were displayed to the children's amazement especially because of their size and components.

In the afternoon they visited Hanger number 4 dedicated to the Battle of Britain. They all recognised a Spitfire, a Messerschmidt and an Anderson shelter. They listened with great care to a talk by Mr Michael Hill, who was a 7 year old child during WWII, who now works as a volunteer at Duxford. They were fascinated to hear all his tales of a youth spent managing the implications of the War.

The children and adults thoroughly enjoyed this wonderful opportunity which enriched their understanding of Historical Events.
