Year 6 are wartime cooks

This week, Year 6 have been learning about rationing during World War II. On Monday, we planned a week’s worth of meals using rationing coupons. The children quickly realised this was a hard task and their meals were meagre in comparison to the meals we eat nowadays. At the start of the week we also began our ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign and picked/ dug up a variety of fruits and vegetables from the school’s garden. These were then washed and scrubbed by the classes and ready for our challenge: to create 3 wartime meals!

Throughout the week, we made homemade bread, a corned beef and vegetables dish and apple fruit cake.

We would like to thank Morrisons, Tesco and Aldi who all kindly donated items of food for our cooking week. We had the most wonderful week washing, preparing and cooking our meals!
