Bomb Sight

Our current topic is World War 2 and it is an area the children in Year 6 are really motivated by and are keen to research further. They are at their best when they the able to make connections between where thy live and the events of the war. There was a reverent silence and some poignant questions during a recent talk from a local resident who described his experiences as an evacuees. Our visitor described how during the Blitz many bombs landed on London and some even landed near to our school. Thanks to Bomb Sight we can now look these up and begin to question why some parts of London seemed to have suffered more than others.

Alongside the site, I have noticed the start-up creators of this concept have also been building an augmented reality app too. Currently this is only on Android, but let us hope it comes to IOS too.
