Doves have been learning all about wartime rationing and how people used strange ingredients in their foods in an effort to ‘make do’. Today we had lots of fun making carrot biscuits and taste-testing them to see if the carrot was a good sugar substitute (the recipe only used a very small amount of sugar). The biscuits proved pretty popular, so much so that the children asked if they could have the recipe to make them at home (see below!)

The year 2s spent a couple of days in Dove class with their new classmates and we investigated the topic of endangered species. Children worked in teams to produce PowerPoints and collages of their animal, and then we voted on which animal we will sponsor with the WWF. The winner was the polar bear!
