Mrs Watt came in and talked about WW2 to P5a last Thursday during snack time. She told us about when her Grandmother and Grandfather had an unusual wedding! It was a surprising, interesting and enjoyable talk from Mrs Watt!
On the 23rd December, 1944 Mrs Watt’s Grandmother got married to a Welsh sailor. It was unusual because she actually had a wedding dress and two dinners. The cake had two tiers which was really lucky because of the rationing going on. One tier was donated from the Navy, and the other tier was made from all the rations from around the village.
After the wedding, it was talked about for years as it was so special. As a class we can understand because we have learned about rationing and how tough it was.
During the war Mrs Watt’s Grandad was in the North Sea on a Navy boat and they came across 9 Norwegian children in a rowing boat. They brought them aboard because they were going to sink and took them back to land. It was a tragic and heartwarming story.
We all say a massive thank you to Mrs Watt to sharing her story!
Look at the photographs to see the special day!
A massive well done to the whole class who combined their writing to make this post! – Mr Drysdale
