On Friday 8th May Europe will be commemorating a very special 75th VE Day but of course this year we will be celebrating it at home. We thought it would be nice to build the excitement and awareness for this special day by basing our activities around this memorable event. First of all read through the VE Day PowerPoint which explains why we celebrate VE Day and will hopefully generate a curiosity to want to know more. We have also put a few optional VE Day themed activities on if you would like more ideas such as baking and bunting making. We are ‘Out of office’ Friday with it being a Bank Holiday but we would love to see how you have celebrated this special event at home or even at a socially distanced street party.
Literacy - For today’s task we would like you to create a ‘Thank You’ card for the veterans who bravely fought in the war. There is one very special man right now called Captain Tom Moore who captured the hearts of the nation by completing 100 laps of his garden to raise money as a thank you to our NHS for all of the hard work, especially now during the Covid-19 Epidemic. You might like to make him a thank you card for his bravery not only in the Second World War but for his role in the fight against coronavirus.
Challenge - If you are would like a bit of a challenge with your writing you could write Captain Tom Moore a thank you letter.
