Coming Soon to Year 5...

To support our History topic on World War II, during Summer term we will be going on a curriculum trip to Stockport Air Raid Shelters. The air raid shelters are carved into the natural sandstone cliffs which create an intriguing network of underground tunnels.  In the museum we will also be learning about how the war affected local people and the community.
