We wanted to show the school how hard it was for children during WW2. Clothes were rationed so they couldn’t just go out and buy new clothes if their old one’s got damaged or too small. Instead they had to borrow hand me downs from parents or older brother or sisters, repair old clothes as best they could or try to make new clothes out of other materials such as curtains or bed-clothes. We made up costumes and organised a make do and mend fashion show for the rest of the school. Sorry some of the photos are a bit blurry but the camera wasn’t very good at action shots.
