Harlow school children discover life on the Home Front at Duxford war museum

CS Duxford

YEAR Five pupils at Cooks Spinney Primary Academy, Harlow, got a taste of life in Britain during the Second World War when they visited Duxford Imperial War Museum as a part of their studies.

The students have been learning about Britain on the Home Front during their history lessons and decided to visit the museum to bring their studies to life. It made history lessons have a realistic feel.

Dean Beaumont, assistant head teacher, said: “The children had a great time exploring the different hangars containing war memorabilia from Lockheed bombers to Anderson shelters; Tiger tanks to anti-aircraft missile launchers; trying on a variety of war clothing and equipment.

“The children were absolutely blown away when they discovered the sheer sizes of many of the aircraft on display.”
