Year 6 have been learning about World War 2. This afternoon we spent time cooking with Chef Nick Fairley, learning about what it was like to be a child during the War. We entered the hall and were faced with British vegetables and some curry powder- that could be found in the back of a cupboard.
Nick really helped us to understand what it was like for children and families during the war. He brought in some old ration books and we could see that not only were there rations for food, but also clothes and petrol!
Some of us were given the opportunity to try on gas masks. We discussed as a class how hard it would be to have to wear them during a lesson. They were quite tight and a little uncomfortable. It was hard for the class to understand what we were saying with them on.
We made a sweet drink made popular during the war, with some unusual ingredients. Carrots and swede! Most of us had a try and it was quite sweet!
