Evacuees For a Day

What an amazing trip we've had! On Tuesday 10th May, Year 5 travelled to Lotherton Hall to experience life as an evacuee. Mrs Taylor was the lady who looked after us and she was quite scary! Mr Morris was our billeting officer and made sure we got to Lotherton Hall safely. We learned about Morse code, did First Aid training and we even had a wartime sing song in the shelter when there was an air raid siren.

Ration Food

In DT this half term, we have been learning about rationed food and how people in the UK made what was available stretch further. We had a look at different ration recipes and chose to cook pancakes and carrot scones. We used a range of different skills including measuring, grating and manipulating. We tasted our food and the pancakes were delicious! The carrot scones didn't go to plan but Mrs Davis made a fresh batch for us to try on our school trip, which were very yummy.
