On Monday we started our mission and had to prepare for the D-Day landing. We had to work out the best route to take using our map and mental maths.
We also needed to prepare the transport and equipment for the mission and make sure that we were fully prepared.

We used the vegetables picked from the school garden to create rationed recipes. We have been looking at rationing and how many ingredients were in short supply.
We made a vegetable stew and some carrot and apple cakes. We added carrot and apples to add sweetness and moisture to the cakes.
The hall was marked out into different vegetable plots. We had to measure and calculate the area of the plots and work out how many vegetables we could grow in each plot.
