Year 6 Visit Bletchley Park

18th October 2022

Year 6 enjoyed a fantastic overnight residential trip on 13th and 14th October,

To support their project based lessons on the ‘Benefits of Warfare’, Year 6 headed first of all to Bletchley Park in Northamptonshire – home of the WW2 codebreakers.  Students loved exploring the Mansion House, wartime huts and other exhibits to discover more about this fascinating period in history and how the work of Alan Turing helped shape modern computing and society as we know it.

Later that evening Year 6 ventured to the Hollywood Bowl in High Wycombe – the chosen venue for our House bowling competition! A closely fought but fun event saw Blakey House take the win! Strikes were scored by; Anna-Maria, Tabitha, Tilly, Aanu, Sophie, Jess G., Annabel, Eliza, Ophelia, Erin and a double for Amy – well done.

The following day, after a good night’s sleep, Year 6 set off for the Warner Bros Studios tour: The Making of Harry Potter in Watford.  They had an incredible day learning about the amazing sets, props and special effects that brought J. K. Rowling’s fabulous stories to life on the big screen. It was particularly interesting for students to see how Dumbledore’s office and The Great Hall compared to their own descriptive writing work that they have been doing in English.
