Inez showed us how to make pancakes today. We found out that years ago everyone had to use up all the eggs, butter and flour before Lent started. During Lent people give something up until Easter. The pancakes went down a treat everyone loved them. Thank you Inez!

I brought in my grandad's WW2 medals for the children to look at. He was a medic in the RAF and he also had to get the planes ready to go again when they came in to refuel. He fought in Germany, Italy, France and Africa and received the Africa Star, the Italy and France Star and the Germany Star. He lived in Scotland and was told to join the RAF he didn't have a choice. He also got the Defence Medal and the War Medal. Grandad never talked about the war and kept his medals in the box. The children really enjoyed seeing the medals as it brought our topic to life!

We all made evacuation cards. We had to make sure our name, address and date of birth were on them. Owen and Callum helped to paint evacuee children for our class display. We used coffee to stain the card so that it looked really old.
