Year 6 FUDGE Day

Year 6 Fudge Day

Year 6 enjoyed a Fudge Day on Friday  23rd  March.   We experienced a whole day of topic related tasks and were joined by 18 F.U.D.G.E.S. (fathers, uncles, dads, grandads and every male role model) for our activities. We are very grateful to everybody who gave up their time to work with us, it certainly couldn’t happen without such support.

The children requested to come in WW2 costume as the day revolved around our topic for the Spring Term. We started our day with some baking using wartime rationing recipes. The children had to convert between imperial and metric measurements and use maths skills when altering proportions of recipes. Back in the classroom they produced leaflets about their bakes.  Then in teams children were given a topic to research and present information on a board.

They deciphered some Morse code instructions which sent the children on a hunt around the school to find items for their next task. One dad commented ‘this is a great idea I’m sorry I missed it last year’ to which the children explained ‘it’s our first one but hopefully it will happen again.’

In the afternoon we had a VE Day style ‘street party’; listening to wartime songs, decorating bunting and eating our delicious bakes.  According to one dad ‘ eggless sponge is surprisingly delicious!’ Another brave parent reviewed the cheese and herb dumplings as ‘an interesting idea that somehow works!’ A great time was had by all; please have a look at our photos of the day.
