6th May Weds WEEK 3

Good morning everyone to the middle of the week .... hump day ..... get through today's learning and then the reward of the weekend is in sight! Remember this Friday is a Bank Holiday as well because we're marking the 75th anniversary of VE Day on the day itself. To start preparing for VE Day, you might like to start thinking about it today. So, what is VE Day? 

VE Day or 'Victory in Europe Day' marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany in Europe came to an end. Have an explore of the clips:

KS2 BBC Video Clip What is VE Day?

Prime Minister Winston Churchill's Speech

Consider  why people were celebrating and why it's important that we remember it nowadays.

Begin to think about how you can mark VE Day. Perhaps you might  learn more about the role of the local area in the war by taking your daily exercise down to the local memorial if appropriate and safe?  You could take your sketchpad and try line and shading work to draw the local memorial (use a photograph if you can't visit) and try and capture the shadow and light. Or maybe you'd like to make some bunting using the colours of the Union Jack and plan some party food to eat to mark the end of the war in Europe. 

Thank you for the walk/scoot/run a mile pictures that are starting to come in. Please keep them coming in; they're great!
