Hot War Cold War KS1 to 4

Venue: York Cold War Bunker, Yorkshire

Term: Ongoing

Ideal for Key Stage 2 to 4 History students, the Hot War Cold War education session takes an indepth look at nuclear war.

Students will explore one of the best surviving nuclear bunkers in England - a time capsule of the 1960s through to the 1990s - and gain an understanding of the nuclear arms race.

The class will answer questions such as: Why did the Cold War emerge? What was the role of the Royal Observation Corps in York's bunker?

Through an expert-led tour, object handling and original audio-visual footage, students will develop a greater understanding of life inside and outside the bunker during this potentially devastating era.
