This week we are thinking about the 75th anniversary of VE Day. Watch this video about the announcement of VE Day and the celebrations that followed - https://home.bt.com/news/on-this-day/may-8-1945-millions-rejoice-on-ve-day-as-german-surrender-ends-world-war-ii-in-europe-11363979788728 . VE Day, across Europe, was a moment of hope and aspiration. The war had been a long and very tough time. VE Day was used to help the country celebrate after this time. Can you talk with the people at home about the different things people might have aspired to do after the war?
PSED - Personal, Social, Emotional Development
During the war people were unable to go to the shop and buy all of the different foods that we have now. To make sure that there was enough food to go around for everybody, families had something called a ration book, which told you how much of each food you were allowed. Because of this families had to make their food last longer and they had to make up new recipes with the small amount of food they did have. Follow the link to find out about some of these recipes, which would you like? You could even have a go at making some of them.
PD - Physical Development
Today we would like you to have a go at one of the videos on Boogie Beebies.
You can choose whichever video you like, we would love to see some videos of you joining in with them. Have fun!
CL - Communication and Language
Have a look at the two pictures below. Do you know who any of these important people are? What is their job? Where do they live? Now see if you can find out who did these jobs at the end of World War two, record their names in your home learning books.
L - Literacy
Thinking about the important people you found out about in the activity above, draw a picture of the Queen and write a sentence to tell us something about her. She has just celebrated a special birthday, can you find out how old she is? What pets does she keep in her palace? What does she wear on her head?
M - Mathematical Development
Today for maths we would like you to keep on thinking about those teen numbers we started learning about with the number blocks yesterday. To do this we would like you to make two tens frames, as below. Give your child a teen number 11-15 and see if they can use buttons, counters, raisons or any other small objects you may have to fill the tens frames to match. They should notice that each time one of the frames is full to make the 10 and the other part of the number is in the second frame.
You could record some of them in your books too!
What are you having for lunch today? Can you help to make it? Ask your grown-up if they can remember our lunch time prayer!
UW – Understanding the World.
During the war a plane called a Spitfire was used move around the skies. Have a look at the video and see that they used to look like.
Have a go at making your own plane today, you could use paper for a paper aeroplane or pegs and lolly sticks like the picture below.
How far did your plane fly?
