WALT: understand what personal growth is, identify life aspirations and visualise where we would like to be in the future.

 

Please see the attached power point and documents you will need for this session. There are lots of discussion and thinking points in this lesson. It would be great for you to share these on your class blog, if you would like to.

 

For your vision board task, please post this into your work folder for teachers to mark.

 

Have a good day and May the 4th be with you!

WALT: prepare and cook a variety of dishes using a range of cooking techniques.

 

Over the next few days, our topic lessons will be linked to VE Day. Today, I would like you to try out some wartime recipes! I have attached a booklet where you can find a variety of sweet and savoury recipes to try at home.

 

I will also attach the recipe that Mrs Hipkin's used to make orange drop cookies, which she made in school with the key worker's children. 

 

We would love to see some photographs of you preparing and cooking one of the recipes! Post your photos to your class blog and send them to the school office, where we will be able to tweet them to class pages on Twitter.

 

Please don't worry if you don't have the ingredients at home to make them today! You are more than welcome to prepare and cook these recipes at a time that suits you better. 

 

Hope you enjoy and we look forward to seeing some photographs!

WALT: gain knowledge and understanding of an aspect in British history.

 

For your History lessons today and tomorrow, you will be learning more about Victory in Europe Day and why it is a significant part of British history.

 

Firstly, read the power point presentation, which will give you lots of information about how Britain and their allies gained victory over the Germans. There is a linked to a video clip included in the power point for your to watch.

 

Then, as part of your task, I would like you to imagine that you are a solider on the front line. You have just been informed that the war in Europe is over. Write a diary entry about the experience and how you now feel.

 

I have attached a diary entry template for you to use, along with VE Day themed teplates. However, writing on your own paper is fine. You may want to get creative! For example, you could tea stain your paper. If you are going to do this, make sure you stain the paper first, let it dry and then write your letter (so the ink does not smudge).

 

Please remember to upload your diary entries to your work folder on Purple Mash.

 

Enjoy

Edit: I have attached a clip from YouTube which shows the celebrations in London. This is a news report from the time showing street parties, dancing in the street and appearance from the Royal family.

WALT: gain knowledge and understanding of an aspect in British history.

 

Today's tasks are lots of fun and exciting activities for you to try out. I have linked lots of websites below where you can find all sorts! Please be aware that the code-breaking activity on the Bletchley Park website is your Maths activity for today.

 

On Friday at 9pm on BBC One, everyone is welcomed to singalong to Vera Lynn’s ‘We’ll Meet Again’. The words along with more information are provided on the British Legion website and I have included a YouTube video with the lyrics. You sang this song as part of your World War II Day, so I think it would be a lovely idea to sing-a-long and see if you can remember the words!

 

Enjoy!
