Year 6 Visit the RAF Museum!
Year 6 had a splendid time over two days at The RAF museum in London. Having studied World War Two and read the emotive novel ‘Goodnight Mr Tom’ last term, they were armed and ready with facts and information and knew all about rationing, the blackout, propaganda, the roles of women and the role of Slough in the war.
It was time to put into practise what they’d learnt. Students had the opportunity to dress like RAF pilots and air crew men; experience an air raid; a lucky few even got to sound the air raid warning and try on a gas mask.
The planes are stunning and there are exhibits dating back to the the early days of flight all the way to modern aircraft. We even saw a Hurricane that was built in Langley.
The museum is well worth a visit if you enjoy aircraft and like a a good walk- Miss Langston clocked up over 10,000 steps during the visit!
