Little Reddings Year 6 World War Two Recipes

Last week, Year 6 came up to Bushey Meads to learn about WW2 and rationing. Students who hadn’t been on the school residential trip had been in school completing a range of activities around the theme of WW2. They were very knowledgeable about rationing and the reasons behind it.

They had chosen to create cheese and potato dumplings from a wartime recipe book. As a challenge, to bring the recipe up to date, students were asked to adapt the recipe to have different flavourings and melting centres.

Year 6 were very impressive with their cooking abilities and worked independently to mash the potatoes and combine the egg and cheese mixture before rolling them into even sized dumplings ready to bake in the oven. Some students stuffed their dumplings with cheese whilst others chose to add herbs and tomato puree.
