Y6 at RAF Cosford


Battle Of Britain

Y6 and their amazing trip to RAF Cosford!

What a great day!! Today we launched our new history topic WW2, more specifically focusing on The Battle of Britain. We had a jam-packed day looking at all RAF Cosford had to offer from the Cold War exhibit to the WW2 Hangar, then checking out missiles and spitfires and even managing to fit in a quick play before lunch. We ended with a history lesson all about the importance of the RAF during WW2 and how much of an impact the Battle of Britain had on the war. We experienced an Anderson shelter and got to dress up and make war plans too. This really is a great place to visit and with admission being free, it certainly is one to keep for those busy (and usually expensive) school holidays.
