Wider curriculum (History)

As you learnt yesterday Friday is a very important day, celebrating the 75th anniversary of VE day. There will be lots of celebrations around the country, although lots will now be taking place at home.

 

 

Your learning tasks for today, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday will be to choose one (or more than one!) of these activities each day, preparing for some celebrations on Friday.

 

  • 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.
