Today marks the 75th anniversary of the end of the war in Europe. We call it Victory in Europe Day or VE Day for short. In 1945, there were three whole days of celebrations including parades, street parties, a service of thanksgiving and a concert in central London! As you can imagine, people were extremely relieved and thrilled that the war was over and, from then on, the 8th of May each year was a public holiday.
Your three today are optional; feel free to do none, one, two or all of them.
In order to find out all about VE Day, you need to read this PowerPoint or watch this clip about VE Day celebrations.
Your first task is to make your own radio or TV broadcast pretending to be Winston Churchill announcing the Victory in Europe.
Things to think about…
– What would you say?
– How would you say it?
– How would you feel?
– How would the British public feel?
– Can you include any information you’ve just read?
You could either write it down, perform it or even record your announcement.
The Royal Mint has released a special £2 coin to mark the 75th anniversary of VE Day. This Newsround article explains more about this.
Once you’ve read the information, have a go at designing your own £2 coin to mark this occasion.
Music was an important part of the celebrations. Today, you can make your own musical instruments using clean junk or bits and bobs from around your house. Check out this website for inspiration. Can you make a guitar, drum or even a xylophone?
As always, we’d love to see your learning and it’d be great to collect in our group efforts in celeberation of VE Day.

Y5&6 Geography – LO: human and physical features
Today’s awesome activity was suggested by Ben in Y6. Thanks, Ben!
Your task today is to spot all the human and physical features in a video game of your choice (like lava from Minecraft). Alternatively, you could spot them being mentioned in your favourite book (like the Hogwart’s castle in Harry Potter). If the first two options don’t appeal to you, you could even take a walk around where you live and take pictures of the ones you spot! You could even do all three if you fancied!
You could record these in your home learning books by writing them down or drawing pictures, make a video commentary or take photos.
Take a look at this
to jog your memory before you get going.
We’d love to see what you come up with and we’d love to hear your suggestions for things you’d like to learn. It could be your turn to set the next task for Y5 & Y6!
Y5&6 Reading – LO: love of reading
Today’s reading task is a nice and chilled one. All we want you to do is to spend at least thirty minutes reading something that you love.
