In 6th Class C we have been learning all about how adults and children lived during World War 2. Rationing During World War 2 was very important. Rationing was a means of ensuring the fair distribution of food and commodities when they were scarce. It began after the start of WW2 with petrol and later included other goods such as butter, sugar and bacon. People were encouraged to be as self-sufficient as they could be by growing their own food and mending their clothes at home.
We designed some posters to encourage people to become self sufficient.
