Battle of Britain Pilot Recounts

In Year 6, we have been learning about the key events during the Second World War. When understanding the significance of the Battle of Britain, the children read a Spitfire pilot's recount of his experience.  Using the slow write method, the children wrote their own version of the recount. A selection of work has been sent to RAF Coningsby, where the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight operates. The book of work will be displayed in the museum along side the last airworthy Battle of Britain Spitfire - P7350 - who still has two bullet holes in her tail as a result of a hit during the battle.


Some of the children's work is below.
