Our Imperial War Museum trip (including coach fire)

November 23rd, 2014

On Monday the 10th of November, we (year 5 of Lever House Primary School) went to the Imperial War Museum North. We went there rather than just having a lesson as our topic is WWII.

We got on the coach at half past nine expecting to arrive in an hour. As we were going onto the M61 the driver, Shaun, pulled onto the hard shoulder as the coach was on FIRE! Luckily, within half an hour another coach came to the rescue!

When we arrived at the museum, we split up into our groups; I was in Miss Chorley’s group alongside:

  • Sam E
  • Lily
  • Lola
  • Ryan
  • Maddie

We looked round lot of exhibits including:

  • Uniform
  • Rationing
  • Evacuted Children
  • How ships and other vehicles got shot down, and much more!

We also watched 2 films, 1 about rationing and the other was lots of memories.

After lunch (which was delicious) we explored lots more exhibits which showed us lots of different shelters:

  • Anderson Shelter
  • Morrison Shelter
  • Fireguard Shelter

And much more!


Today was the most interesting day (including the bus fire), which was also frightening. It was the best!

Thank You For Reading!
