Year 6 Visit to Coningsby

As part of their work on the Second World War, Year 6 visited RAF Coningsby and Thorpe Camp.   At RAF Coningsby they were privileged to have a guided tour round the historic Battle of Britain Memorial Flight aircraft hangar.   They were able to stand very close to these famous aircraft, which include Spitfires (one flew in the Battle of Britain), Hurricanes, a Dakota and the fantastic Lancaster.   Their guides gave a lot of background to the aircraft and their crews which brought the period alive to them.   They also visited Thorpe Camp, which was a station linked to RAF Woodhall Spa which was a base for 617 (Dambusters) Squadron.   Here they saw the huts used for exhibitions and reconstructions of homes and buildings from the war.
