What’s all this about Rationing?

We’re going to be investigating Rationing and then presenting our findings using Purplemash.  Have a look at the BBC site linked on the image of the evacuee. Read through the information and add it to your Rationing mind map.  You can record your findings as writing or pictures, but you will need to be able to use the notes to help you write about Rationing.

Home Learning 09-11-12

As a Home Learning task I’d like you to find a bag (a supermarket type is fine for size). In it they are to pack to be evacuated. You cannot take anything which will not fit in the bag and must prioritise items as you would have been staying away for a very long time. In your home learning books list what you took and why you have chosen them. You should also reflect on how it felt to be leaving behind the things they enjoy in their home, e.g. games, books, photos etc…Bring in your home learning book and perhaps a photo of the packed bag.  Happy Packing!
