Term 5 Week 3 Planning
Monday 4th May 2020
Dear Archie, Eva, Harriet, Starr, Georgi, Evie W, Ben, Evie C, Troy, Mollie, Dylan, Henry, Kealey, Alice, Jake, James, Lily, Ella, Emmie, Edie, Monty, Louie, Cameron, Charlie, Nicole, Jack and Leo! (and all your new teachers!)
Hi everyone! Another week has passed by where I’ve missed seeing you and hearing all about the wonderful things that you’ve been up to. I think you will all be able to write a book about your antics and adventures when you finally return to school! I have been able to see a lot of your brilliant work on the PTFA Facebook page and some of your parents have emailed me some of your work too which has certainly been a pleasure to see and read. Thank You!
I hope you enjoyed doing some (or all!) of the activities that I prepared for you but if you haven’t managed to, then don’t worry. I know that a lot of you are regularly ‘Purple Mashing’, ‘Rockstar’ times tabling and downloading different tasks that Mr Sanders has put onto the school website for you. I also heard that some of your new teachers have purchased special workbooks for you to do. Which is brilliant! So, please remember, it doesn’t really matter what educational activities you are doing, just as long as you are doing something to keep your brain active and alert for a little while each day is great.
Friday May 8th 1945 was announced as Victory in Europe day or VE-Day where communities could finally celebrate the end of a very difficult time. It was a day of parties, flag waving and celebration in towns and villages throughout the whole of Britain. This was because it was a day of relief and joy that the Second World War was finally over in Europe. That was 75 years ago.
At school this year (2020) we were planning to participate in lots of fun activities throughout the week to commemorate and celebrate this important Historical event. Then, as this Friday, May 8th 2020 is a Bank Holiday Day, you would have had the day off! Unfortunately, with the current circumstances, we haven’t been able to do that. Hopefully we’ll organise something exciting for when we all return to school. In the meantime, perhaps you would like to investigate this event further by visiting the ‘VE Day’ resources section on the Twinkl website where there are lots of activities you can use to find out more about Friday May 8th 1945. There are arts and crafts, colouring pages, word searches, recipes, maths and so many other fabulous practical tasks you could do.
I really hope that the ‘lockdown’ restrictions will be lifted soon so that we can eventually all get together again – you probably all need to get back to school to have a rest away from all the hard work that your new teachers are giving you!
Be Good, Stay Safe and look after each other!
Love Mrs Tutt
