Year 6 pupils food rationed!

During our World War 2 topic, the children in Year 6 learnt about the different foods that were available during the war years.  They had to understand that some of the foods that we have today were simply not available during these years.  We used some of our geographical knowledge to see why some foods were difficult to obtain.  Using the internet we researched some everyday recipes and decided to cook some of them in the classroom.  We had some success with our carrot and honey cakes, our rock cakes and our war time biscuits... and of course, we all enjoyed sampling them!
