Year One Remembers

On a wet and blustery morning Year One walked down to the war memorial in Woodhall and then onto the Squadron bar in the Petwood Hotel. The children were great sleuths, asking many questions and discovering hidden facts for themselves. Back in the classroom they have used these questions to shape some of the learning in their topic sessions. 

Here they are discovering artefacts, paintings, newspaper articles and messages to do with the 617 squadron and the Dambusters. Sam even discovered an actual tree branch that was caught up in one of the Lancaster’s due to flying low over a forest.
