Oak experience the Blitz
As part of an introduction to our World War 2 history topic this term, we (Oak class) visited the Blitz exhibition at Flambards Theme Park.
Among the re-creations of domestic rooms and shops of the period, there were the sights and sounds of a bomb-blasted house, the claustrophobic interior of an Anderson shelter and a reminder of the roles played by the brave men and women on the home-front in the fire service, the ARP units and the morale-boosting NAAFI.
Also, we had the opportunity to explore the Victorian village and study the history-of-aviation exhibits. A great start to the term!
