Swansea WW2 trip

Dosbarth Mrs Curtis had an early start on Thursday morning travelling in style, on a VIP bus to Swansea. First stop was the Dylan Thomas theatre to see the play, ‘Arandora Star’. Where we learnt all about Welsh/Italians living in south Wales during WW2 and how they were treated during this time. This was followed by a question and answer session with the cast.

After lunch we had a quick walk around the waterfront, before going to the Waterfront Museum to take part in a WW2 workshop.

WW2 Cooking

Dosbarth Mrs Curtis and dosbarth Miss Powell are investigating how recipes had to be re-invented during World War 2, due to food shortages and rationing. Both classes discussed what types of food you could grow in your garden that could be added to cakes, instead of other hard to get ingredients. We decided that if you could put carrots in a cake, then maybe you could use other vegetables too.

This week we have made beetroot chocolate cake.

We were all a bit put off by the thought of beetroot in cakes. However once we tasted them, we discovered they were delicious!

We have all made a WW2 recipe book that we will add a new recipe to each week.

I wonder what next weeks recipe will be?

Learners leading the learning

This term, Dosbarth Mrs Curtis and Dosbarth Miss Powell have been focusing on ball skills in Health and Wellbeing. To conclude our learning, volunteers from both classes set up and led various football drills to develop core skills such as dribbling, passing, scoring and defending. We are looking forward to next week with different leaders!

Here are the leaders of this week in action…
