Year 6 Visit to Liverpool

On Monday 11th November Year 6 went on a visit to Liverpool City Centre to enhance their learning of World War Two.

Having boarded the train to Liverpool the children’s first port of call was ‘The Western Approaches War II Museum’. Combined Operations, which were responsible for control of the Western Approaches, was moved in 1941 from Plymouth to Derby House, part of Exchange Buildings. Throughout the years of WW2, Liverpool was Britain's main convoy port.

Following this, the children made their way to Exchange Flags for a Remembrance Service. During the service the bugle was played, wreaths laid, a vicar said a prayer. This was followed by a 2 minute silence. The children received lots of lovely comments about how well behaved and respectful they were during this very special service.

After lunch the children visited the Maritime Museum to learn about the Battle of Atlantic. Did you know that The Battle of the Atlantic was the longest campaign of the Second World War and was the most crucial? It began on the first day of the war and continued until the last, almost 6 years later. The children enjoyed walking around reading all the fascinating facts and completing tasks.

Year 6 returned to school having had a very enjoyable day!
