Wider curriculum (History)

Today is the 75th anniversary of VE day and all around the country people will be celebrating in their own way! Today is the day where you can put up any decorations you have made, make any of the party food you have planned and sing and dance along to some of the wartime songs from the 1940s that you have learnt.

 

 

If you want to carry on with any of the activities, here is the list that you have been choosing from the last few days.

 

  • Create an invitation for the celebrations - can you design a poster with a red, white and blue theme?
  • Look at what children would have worn for celebrations in the 1940s, can you plan your party outfit for Friday?
  • Research some wartime songs that they would have sung at that time. Learn some ready to sing on Friday.
