As part of our WW2 topic, 4B experienced first hand how life changed for children during the Second World War. At the start of the day, the carrot lollies were a surprising hit. By half past nine, 4B had already had one of their five-a-day. The class then discovered what food was rationed and why the scheme was introduced by the GOV. When selecting rationed food items to exchange for coupons in our ration books, the children were shocked at the small quantities. We realised why it was so important to 'dig for victory' and 'make do and mend.' Taking into consideration their weekly allowance, 4B followed a WW2 cooking recipe to produce carrot cookies. The main highlight was the WW2 tasting session. We tried carrot cookies, honey biscuits as well as vegetable soup using seasonal veg. Take a look at the movie reel which captured moments from our exciting day.
