Monday 4th May
This Friday (8th May) marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day) and the beginning of the end of World War 2. We would like you to spend some time this week finding out a bit more about VE Day. We have based this week's English tasks on this significant event in our history and you will also find a section on our home learning page dedicated to VE day and providing a number of different activities for you to explore. Other year groups are also doing this so it may be something you could work together on as a family.
The May Day Bank holiday had been moved to Friday the 8th May this year to allow people a long weekend to commemorate this anniversary and many fetes, parades and street parties had been planned. Obviously these are no longer possible and many people are planning a 'stay at home' street party instead. Some of the resources we have provided will help you to do the same if you want to.
You will find a link in the resources to a live singalong event that is happening at 11am on Thursday 7th May. Why not get practising the songs and join in on Thursday (we have given you a day off English tasks that day so that you can explore some of the other VE day activities). https://www.carradinescockneysingalong.co.uk/ve-day
