Activities from Week 4.5.2020
Thank you to all who sent their Pupil Voice Recordings. What a lot of brilliant knowledge and ideas.
Kayley and Bella wrote these fabulous poems.
This week I have selected some activities to celebrate the 75th Anniversary of VE Day - Victory in Europe Day on Friday 8th May.
This is the day that the 2nd World War ended in Europe.
To introduce these activities there is a powerpoint of information and a set of timeline cards which give dates of the main events from 1939 to 1945. Children can attempt to order the timeline and then share some time discussing some of the events and the effect it had on people's lives. They might be able to see some similarities to the war and the Covid19 lockdown, dangers, families separated etc. There is also a VE Day discussion activity. Please take time to talk about these important aspects of our history to help the children understand the significance of remembering them today.
