Today Caron, our ICT technician, came with 5 new webcams for our laptops and downloaded Marratech onto all our laptops - she worked out how we can use it on the network so now we can "video conference" with each other from different rooms.

Wednesday 17th January
We are just finishing a topic about The Homefront during WW2. Today we did some wartime cooking with Mrs Underwood; Feionne found a recipe on the internet. Some people said they would eat them if there wasn't anything else but they didn't really like them, which is probably what children in wartime thought too.
1 lb mashed potatoes
½ lb cooked carrots, milk, salt and pepper
Whip mashed potatoes to a loose creamy consistency with a little milk.
Season well with salt and pepper.
Add diced carrots
Panfry slowly in very little fat until crisp and brown
