A Day At Duxford

Students spent time in an air raid shelter and tried on gas masks during a trip to Duxford Imperial War Museum.

Caren Brown's Resource Provision class enjoyed some hands-on learning about World War Two, including finding out how families would pile into Morrison shelters in their homes during air raids.

They also saw what a 1930s house looked like, complete with an old fashioned record player and carpet sweeper.

The students tried on soldier uniforms and had a go at playing children's games from the '30s and '40s.

Some of the group also enjoyed a day of fishing this month thanks to the Masonic Trout and Salmon Flyfishing Club.

The students even brought some of the fish back with them so Catering Manager Chris Lapsley could prepare and cook them.

Jake Macquarie provided this student report of the day:

"On Thursday 5th May we went fishing at Ringstead. Some of us took the fish home.

"The castor I fished with was called John. He was nice because he taught me how to fish.

"My favourite part of the day was getting a certificate."
