As part of their History topic, The Second World War, Year 6 had the opportunity to visit Bentley Priory.
Located in a Grade II* listed mansion house, which was Headquarters Fighter Command during the Battle of Britain, Bentley Priory Museum offered a unique and inspiring learning environment for our year 6 children.
Through engagement with the Museum’s handling collection, students explored the roles of men and women during the Battle of Britain and the technology they utilised.
Students also learnt about the important work of RAF Bentley Priory during the Battle of Britain and the contribution of the WAAF (Women’s Auxiliary Air Force).
It was a fantastic school trip that brought The Second World War to life and built on prior learning.
