Battle of Britain – highlights for a Key Stage 3/4 visit to the Museum

Exploring the Cold War

This Exploring the Cold War information and activity pack is designed to accompany learning about the Cold War. It is designed for use by upper Key Stage 3 pupils, but would also make a great introduction to the topic for GCSE History students.

The resource includes a glossary of key terms, information, reflection questions and learning activities to be used in the classroom or at home, along with activities to try during a visit to the RAF Museum.

Exploring the Cold War Teacher Pack

This Teacher Information and Answer Pack accompanies the ‘Exploring the Cold War’ resource for KS3/GCSE students. It contains a summarised history of the Cold War and answers to the questions asked in the student pack to help with marking.

Sketching at the Museum

The Museum is a great place to discover some amazing art and design, from paintings and sculpture to aircraft art, structures and camouflage. You can also get creative and do some sketching as part of your visit.

Exploring Fiona Banner’s Aeroplane Alphabet

In 2023 the Museum acquired ‘The Bastard Word Studies’, a collection of 26 drawings by Fiona Banner that form an aeroplane alphabet. Explore Fiona Banner’s work with these activity and information packs, designed for use by Art and History of Art students at the Museum and in the classroom. They contain lots of talking points to inspire discussion and debate, alongside a range of creative activities to try out.
