Pupils with the war-time food.
YOUNG cooks from Bembridge Primary School staged their own great war-time bake-off.
Year 6 pupils challenged themselves by cooking war-time recipes as a fitting end to their Second World War project.
Class teacher Lindsey Stapeley said the children could now appreciate how difficult life was during rationing and how resourceful they had to be.
She said: "The school’s very own Mary Berry, Veronica Wastell, who helps in school and regularly bakes delicious cakes for the staff, judged the competition.
"She was happy to announce the fruit was evenly dispersed in the rock cakes with no soggy bottoms.
"The children have thoroughly enjoyed the topic and they have researched the impact of the Second World War on the Island, including finding out about PLUTO by visiting the heritage centre in Bembridge.
"They have been over to the D-day Museum in Portsmouth, as well as acting out the evacuation by walking down to the Methodist hall in Bembridge where the children had to be chosen by villagers."
