Trip to Newhaven Fort

12th October 2017
Year 6 enjoyed a trip to Newhaven Fort last week. We learned a great deal about the Home Front and what happened during the Blitz.  The sound of an air raid siren started our day and we listened carefully for the differences between an imminent attack and the all clear. Next, we entered the air raid experience set in a subway. The lights flickered and the room shook when the bombs landed. Fortunately it was only pretend; how frightening it would have been to have lived through it!
