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?
