A Virtual Visit for Cobalt Class!
This term, Cobalt class have been learning all about the Battle of Britain, with a focus on the Battle of Britain. After learning all about Hugh Dowding, Radar and the Observation Corps, we were lucky enough to have the chance to speak to WO2 Gould about the modern day equivalent and how this job is carried out today. It was fascinating to find out all about the advancements in technology whilst also discussing the ways the role is still quite similar to that of the Observation Corps created for WW2. The children loved being able to see the Tornado, the helicopters and tanks that he was able to show us and were amazed at the way that radar has developed. Although COVID has meant that we were unable to go on a trip to see the planes in real life, it was brilliant to be able to video call an expert and to still be able to see real vehicles and systems.
