Year 4’s Alphabet War Poem

Air-raid wardens checking London,

Bombs falling down, down, down,

Chaos is caused by war.

Destiny is to win!

 

Evacuees leave their homes,

Fatal days await for those who fight,

Germany controlled by Hitler,

Hitler’s cruel as ever can be,

Innocent men fighting for their families,

Joining forces with other countries, together we will win!

 

Kisses for no one,

Loved children leaving,

Mothers cry tears for their children,

New homes, no birthday cake, no kisses, no hugs.

Ordinary people being killed.

Passengers aboard trains as they cry and wave to their kin.

 

Quickly bombs destroy our homes,

Rationing is hard but we survive, we’ve got our bit to keep us alive,

 

Sad soldiers have to fight,

Trillions of people lost their lives.

Ugly scenes abandoned by German bombs,

Violent bombs destroyed our city,

Weary people, scared for their lives,

eXit your house before the bombs hit,

 

Years gone by but brave soldiers will not be forgotten,

Zest was showered over Britain as we won the war!

WW2 Carrot Cookies recipe

The children in year 4 baked a recipe from WW2 today.

We have been looking at the types of foods they ate during the war and how they coped with the ration.

We decided to make our very own WW2 cookies, they were very yummy, so here is the recipe…

Carrot Cookie Recipe

1 tbsp marg or butter

2tbsp sugar

a drop of vanilla essence

4tbsp of grated carrot (about half a big carrot)

6oz self raising flour

Milk

 

Method:

Cream the butter and sugar until fluffy, add grated carrot and flavouring. Work in the flour. At this point add the milk gradually to make a sticky dough.

Drop spoonfuls of dough onto a greased baking tray. Sprinkle each cookie with a little demerara sugar and bake in a ‘brisk oven’ (180c) for 20 minutes.

Makes 12-15

*look more like rock cakes rather than cookies!

Enjoy!!
