What a great trip we had at the start of this half term! We visited the Western Approaches Museum in Rumford Street, Liverpool. We toured the preserved naval bunker which was the control centre for the battle of the Atlantic during World War Two. We visited the battle rooms, the communications room and even Admiral Hooten’s office. We even got to try on period hats, helmets and gas masks, as well as experiencing a full sized Anderson shelter and a World War Two shop. We also visited the Museum of Liverpool to study Liverpool during the war. We saw photographs and read accounts from survivors of the ‘Bootle Blitz’. A great day all round and our history topic brought to life.
