All of S3/Y9 recently visited the Imperial War Museum in Manchester with the view of discovering more about how war affected women, soldiers and children following work done during this term in class.
On arrival, they were greeted by a T-55 tank, used by the Soviet Union in World War Two, before making their way into the museum, where an array of objects, big and small, could be found. All the boys got the opportunity to handle authentic war time artefacts such as gas masks and a pre-exploded incendiary bomb. This gave the year group a unique chance to put themselves in the shoes of British citizens on the Home Front in the Second World War, as well as picturing the destructive nature of bombs dropped by German "Dornier Do 23" aircrafts onto key areas of the British landscape.
A very informative day indeed!
