Good morning Year 6!
Welcome to week 7 of 'Learning From Home'. Miss Gregory and I would like to once again extend our heartfelt thanks to each and every single one of you, for both the video and photo messages we received last week. We were both touched and overwhelmed by this genuine act of kindness. We truly miss each and every single one of you.
This week sees the 75th commemoration of VE Day, marking when the guns fell silent and the fighting stopped in Europe - there were supposed to be street parties and national events to help celebrate, however we will instead mark this historic occasion in the safety of our own homes. We have put together a comprehensive bundle of resources to help you not only celebrate this historic event, but to also understand and reflect on the significance of what VE Day is and the sacrifices of the Second World War generation.
We have set a VE Day project for you to complete throughout the week, just tick off each task as you complete it. English will be a writing task about VE Day and if you want to, you can enter Dan Snow's competition (deadline Wednesday 6th May 2020) or simply send your final pieces to us. There are lots of historical pieces of work for you to complete, which include looking at footage of when Winston Churchill announced to the nation that Victory had been achieved in Europe. Celebration roared throughout the land, so we have also included lots to help you celebrate, from creating your own bunting, to designing your own posters, listening to music and joining in with a live sing-a-long on Thursday 7th May at 11am. You can plan your very own VE Day party and make 1940s food to get you into the spirit of it all! We very much look forward to seeing all of your VE Day creations, as there is so much for you to do this week, but most importantly we hope you will have a better understanding of VE Day.
Don't forget to use the main VE Day link on the Class Pages front page - Union Jack link (I don't think you can miss it ;-) ).
We hope you enjoy VE Day 75 and have a fabulous week of learning.
Miss Gregory and Mrs Terry
