Cooking with rations!

In our topic lessons, we have been learning all about rationing during WW2. Earlier in the term, we were really lucky to have Robert’s Grandad come in and share his memories of rationing during World War 2. He showed us a rationing book and told us about what products were rationed during this time. It was really interesting to hear from someone who had experienced rationing.
In order to explore rationing further,we made savoury scones using a WW2 recipe.

Exploring evacuation during WW2

In our literacy and topic lessons, we have been exploring what it was like
for children who were evacuated during WW2. First, we learnt about what
items the evacuees were allowed to take with them. When discussing what we
would pack in our suitcases, we said we would take pictures of our
families, toys and paper so we could write to our parents.

World War 2

In Year 4, we have really enjoyed researching our new topic. We started by
learning about what Britain was like in the 1930s. Next, we investigated
why World War 2 started. We have also really enjoyed sharing stories about
our family members who were involved in WW2.
