World Book Week – March 2015

I know – a picture of the Red Arrows for world book week!

I spent my time during WBW working out with children if Superheroes were Fact or Fiction. To do this I go t to visit four different Aviation Heritage sights in Lincolnshire where the guides told us all about the hero’s of WWII.

I have to say it was a huge success, and even I had to hold back a few tears hearing the stories of true hero’s. I can only hope the children enjoyed it as much as I did.
