World War II

This term Primary 7 have been learning about World War II. We have found out about the countries involved, significant people, evacuees, rationing, The Blitz and concentration camps. Many of us enjoyed making Carrot Cookies by following a war time recipe. We thought they would taste disgusting but they were very tasty! We held a showcase afternoon for our parents to share all of our work. They enjoyed our singing and said that we were very confident when talking about our learning. We also read the book ‘The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas’. It was an engaging story with a very sad and shocking ending! To complete our topic Mr Kearsley came in to talk about Auschwitz-Birkenau. We were shocked and amazed to hear about some of the things that happened.

We have really enjoyed this topic, including lots of personal research at home.
