Children will feel inspired to learn more and have lasting memories to help underpin future learning. This is the perfect kick off to a new topic of learning and links perfectly to the national curriculum!

Experience The Life Of Archie Williams.

As part of our in-school learning experience, children will be taught the story of Archie Williams, a boy whose father was a pilot in the Royal Air Force (RAF). Archie’s story is inspired by the real experiences of those who served in Bomber Command.

Learn how this ordinary young boy went on to be an incredible rear gunner! One of the most dangerous jobs during World War II.

Children will love hearing the story which allows them to relate to their surroundings and the relatable characters who are inspired by real stories. There are plenty of discussion points planned in to enable children to actively engage with the learning throughout.

By utilising many famous Lincolnshire landmarks (such as the cathedral), children are able to understand how history fits into their own lives. Giving children this anchor point also allows them to anchor their learning and gain a deeper understanding.

Bring History To Life In Your Classroom!

Our team will bring a selection of real props to engage your pupils! Including flyer goggles, an oxygen mask and a pilot’s cap.

Your classroom will feel like the Bomber Command training facilities during World War 2, with children encouraged to dress up as pilots and officers using the provided costumes. They will be taught about the significance of each role and guided through training before heading on a march.

“Interactive, good price and aimed at the right age. Linked really well to our topic.” – Woodlands Infant School.

Not only are our in school workshops fun, they allow children to embed their learning from hands-on experiences and relatable stories they’ll remember. This unique experience is perfect for an afternoon or for schools where it’s not possible to visit us here at IBCC.
