Thursday 7th May 2020


Today is going to be the last blog for this week Foxes. Have you been checking the school website and Facebook page with your grown-ups this week? 

Don’t forget to send your photos to us as well.


Phonics / GPS

Our phonics task today is a mixture of the different tasks that we have been working on, you can find it by following the link


Collective Worship


Our Collective Worship value for today is LEARN.

Think about all that you have learned this week. It is very important that we learn from history.

There is a famous quote from the poet and novelist George Santayana which says,

 “Those who do not learn history are doomed to repeat it.”

This helps to remind us, that we must remember things that have previously happened and ensure that we do not let the bad things happened again. Remembering VE Day every year helps with this.

What piece of information have you learnt this week about WWII and VE Day, has surprised you the most?

As part of the VE Day celebrations this year, many people were due to hold lots of street parties and other celebrations, these are now unable to happened. However, you could still have your own mini party in your own back garden or house. This will help you remember and celebrate all you have learnt about VE Day – you could do this tomorrow on the 75th Anniversary of VE Day.

Can you complete the challenges for today by following




Today we are going to write an acrostic poem, I know how good you are at these, so do you think that you can impress your grown-ups too? You can choose the word that you use, but it must be something to do with the VE Day celebrations, so it could be solider, VE Day, aeroplane or victory. Choose one of these or decide on your own word. If you send your pictures in to us we can add your work to the display around the front door of school. There is a template that you could use on the website or design your own.

Topic – Music and PSHE

Miss Thurston has sent this to me because she knew how much you would enjoy completing these activities this afternoon.


There are two songs that you might have already heard because they have been on the news a lot recently. One is called ‘We’ll Meet Again’ by Vera Lynn and Kathryn Jenkins, this song was first heard during the war and Vera Lynn who is a very famous singer used to sing it then as well. Follow the link to hear it

The second song is called ‘You’ll never walk alone’ sung by Colonel Tom Moore and Michael Ball. This song has been sung by lots of different people but this version has been used to raise money for all of the people who work for the NHS and are working very hard at the moment. Follow the link to hear it

When you have listened to both songs and had a go at singing along Miss Thurston would love for you to try and think about a song that you could write about seeing your friends again soon. Don’t forget that you can send your work to her using
