Year 6 pupils embarked on an exciting historical journey last Friday as they took their learning outside of the classroom, visiting the Battle of Britain Bunker in Uxbridge.

As part of the “History Explorers” workshop, the young historians had hands-on experience with the objects and technology used during World War Two. The dial telephones, relics of a bygone era, seemed to particularly fascinate them!

The highlight of the trip was a private tour of the 1940s Bunker, where students had the privilege of stepping into the Operations Room used during the Battle of Britain.

The pupils also enjoyed exploring the Visitor Centre, where they indulged in some dress-up fun, further connecting with the past.

This educational trip proved to be an enlightening and entertaining experience, giving our Year 6 pupils a tangible connection to the past and a deeper understanding of the history they’ve been studying.
