It has been another busy week for everyone at Horning Primary School as we prepared our Harvest Festival service in church.
We linked our contribution to the service with our topic. Children researched the effects of the war on food production and rationing. We were able to share a typical week’s ration and how the country pulled together to maintain the production of food in Britain. We were amazed at some of the facts we uncovered. ‘Britain imported 75% of its food before the war began but by 1945 it was producing 75% of its food in Britain.’
We continued the World War 2 theme as we became journalistic writers. Some year groups typed their eyewitness accounts onto tabloid templates but as always, there were a few teething issues with the technology but this didn’t hamper our writing spirits. We had some fantastic accounts of what was seen in the aftermath of the London bombings.
In maths, we consolidated our understanding of mental addition and subtraction in the lower years and money in the upper years. All in all we have certainly earned our half term break. We hope you all have a restful break and we look forward to seeing everyone freshed and ready for our next term.
