Prep 4 have been very enthusiastic about their new World War 2 topic. We have been incredibly lucky to have so many girls bring in such wonderful WWII memorabilia to share with the class. Thank you to all parents, grandparents and other family members who kindly sent items in.
Throughout our WWII topic, Prep 4 have also been learning about food rationing and what different types of food people would have used for cooking and baking. We had lots of fun making our own carrot cookies and they were surprisingly quite tasty, although I don’t think we would swap them for chocolate chips anytime soon!
Technology in WWII
Prep 4 welcomed Dr Ben Harrison, a computer engineer from Alert Logic. He taught us how computers helped us win the war by breaking the enigma code. We made up our own codes and tried to crack them which was great fun.
