History comes to life at DuxfordPosted: 15th July 2019
History came to life when students took a visit to the Imperial War Museum.
The trip to Duxford enabled Year 8 students from Forest Hall School to get a better understanding of WWI and WWII.
Students were given an educational tour and completed a booklet with their findings.
Jon Perry, head of humanities, said: “This trip enriched students’ understanding and, in particular, the role the local community played in the world wars as Duxford is just 20 minutes from our school.
“We are bringing history to life by enabling students to see the planes, tanks and weapons active during the conflicts. They even got to talk to older tour guides who were able to give their personal accounts of being bombed.
“The students lapped it up.”
It is hoped the trip, the first for the school, will now become an annual event.
