The weekend has finally landed in Cambridge and despite the weather cooling off a little, the students’ spirits were still high as they headed out on an exciting excursion to Britain’s largest aviation museum, Duxford Imperial War Museum.
It was fantastic to see all of the students’ deep interest in the aircrafts as well as the history behind them. The War Museum houses over two hundred aircrafts, military vehicles, artillery and minor naval vessels. It aims to tell some of the tragic and heroic histories of the brave people who lived, died and fought through World War One and World War Two.
The students’ engagement in this trip was brilliant and everyone was interested to have a look inside some of these spectacularly engineered aircrafts, as well as to learn some more about the uses of the vehicles.
At the end of the excursion, there was also the chance to visit the gift shop where some of the group chose to purchase some rather appropriate pilot goggles! Once the tour was complete, everyone enjoyed a quick ice cream before boarding the coach.
After dinner in the garden room, everyone had the opportunity to listen to two fantastic and inspirational guest speakers in the Riley auditorium. Overall, it was a busy start to the weekend, and the students look forward to a sociable and active day tomorrow as Clare hosts a Sports Day!
