The children and staff enjoyed a creative day to start their historical topic with a bang!

On Monday 8th January, Year 6 had the opportunity to experience what life was like during World War II.

The day was full of fun activities such as: swing dancing, baking a rationed recipe and acting out what life was like as an evacuee.

At the end of the day, we all went to the hall which had been decorated with bunting for a tea dance. We performed the dances we had learnt and refuelled with the delicious carrot cake that we had baked. Did you know… Carrot cake was popular during the war due to the limited amount of sugar that was available and carrots are naturally sweet!

We enjoyed our hands on experiences and found that the day was an excellent start to our new topic! Please take a look at our school website where there are lots of photographs showing our fantastic costumes and just how much fun we had!
