Year 6: World War Two Day

Year 6 World War 2 Day saw our pupils learning a greater appreciation of life in wartime Britain. They adopted the role of code breakers from Bletchley Park, using the Caesar cipher to crack encrypted messages. Theymade newspaper plant pots and sowed salad leaf seeds as part of the 'Dig for Victory' campaign. To better understand the impact of rationing, all pupils baked wartime recipes including bread pudding and cheese whirls. They also experienced life as evacuees and wrote a postcard home to their parents. To end the day, Year 6 sampled the food they had baked and enjoyed a joyful VE Day celebration.
