In our history we looked at children in World War 2 and the effect it had on them during the blitz, and how children coped with rationing. We also made WW2 soup. With rationing we only had vegetables to use so in groups of four each child chose one vegetable for the pot. Some tasted nice and some were OK, if you were hungry. To make it more filling we made soda bread to eat with it.
World War 2 Day brought home to us what life was like in school and down the high street.
