On Monday, Year 6 enjoyed a WWII themed Creative Day. Everyone dressed up as a character from WWII, some of which included: evacuees, land girls, soldiers, medics and many more! The first activity was ration cooking; we learnt about the shortage of food and followed a popular carrot cake recipe from that time. After that, we had an opportunity to learn a 1940’s style dance and learnt how it lifted the morale when times were tough. Next, we learnt about what life was like for evacuees. We signed our own tags that evacuees wore when they were moving to the countryside. Finally in the afternoon, we had a tea dance where were got to eat the delicious carrot cake we had made and showcased our fabulous dance moves. Overall, it was a fantastic day learning what life would have been like in WWII.
