Coningsby Visit by Year 6
Our Year 6 classes enjoyed a fantastic day at the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight at RAF Coningsby and the Thorpe Camp WW2 Museum. At Coningsby they were able to walk and stand within touching distance (no touching!) of the Hurricane, Spitfire and Lancaster aircraft. They heard about the aircraft and their brave crews from excellent guides. Similarly at Thorpe Camp the guide described the artefacts, mock-up rooms and aircraft in interesting detail. A thoroughly exciting day which gave them so much valuable first hand experience.
