WW2 food tasting session - 02/10/19


The children have been learning about WW2 and rationing in History. As a part of this, the Year 5 teachers prepared some interesting dishes for the children to try. 

They were:

- Beef and vegetable pie

- Oatmeal soup

- Two different types of bread with ginger jam

- Carrot scones

- Carrot cake 

- Orange cake


Well done to the children who were brave and tried something yes! Overall, they seemed to like the orange cake the most.


Children: What do you think it would have been like to be a child in WW2? Would you have liked eating those dishes all the time? Why/why not?


If you want to try making your own recipes with your families, follow this link:

In Maths, last week, the children learnt to identify Roman numerals. This week, they started working on place value and ordering numbers up to 100 000. They practised using these symbols: < > =.

Children: Can you remember what they stand for? 

Here are some fun interactive games you can play to practise place value:


Enjoy laugh!

Science - Dissolving experiment

All of the Year 5 children have started learning about the effects of World War 2. Unfortunately, last week their classrooms were (temporarily) destroyed. The children discussed how this made them feel and thought about victims during the war. They also began to learn about Anne Frank's diary. 

Take a look at where Anne and her family lived during the war:


Children: Would you have liked to live there? Why?
