 Win a FREE Writing Day

Do your Year 5 or 6 pupils have what it takes to imagine a Battle of Britain story that will appeal to children of their own age? If so, submit a 100 word blurb for the book, and you and your class could be winging your way to the RAF Museum for one of our FREE Writing Days with published children's author Tom Palmer.

Our Battle of Britain Writing Days are designed to help classes of children develop ideas and the first lines of a Battle of Britain story using the excitement of Second World War Handling Objects and the aircraft in the Museum to make writing feel more meaningful, purposeful and fun. Tom will also talk about his books and how he writes them.

World Book Day 

World Book Day: Edwin and the time-travelling Spitfire

Thursday 5 March 2020

Join our time-travelling pilot to find out what happens when his Spitfire gets stuck in a tree and he finds himself thrown (quite literally!) into 2020. With the iconic Spitfire as the backdrop for this interactive storytelling, the adventure is really brought to life! The session concludes with a mini-tour around those planes and helicopters that we know are favourites with children. Perfect inspiration for writing back at school...

Available for all Primary Years. Years 1-3 can enjoy the story in poetry form, while Years 4-6 can delight in a prose version. FREE.
