What can we learn about life on the Home front?

What an exciting half term, we have had learning all about WWII and life on the home front. We have looked at the role women played, how people could grow their own vegetables and make do and mend, we have even become expert code breakers – just like the ones we saw at Bletchley Park!

This week, we invited in parents and friends to join us for an afternoon of tea and cakes. We busily baked in the morning not only a delicious British favorite ( a Victoria Sponge) but also a WWII inspired boiled cake using as few rationed ingredients as we could.

Year 4 have all thoroughly enjoyed this field of study and I hope that next half term, they will be just as curious.
