Hi year 3

On Thursday and Friday I want you to think about VE Day.

On Friday 8th Of May, many people will be having stay at home street parties and decorating themselves and their homes in red, white and blue to represent the Union Jack.

Here are some activities and resources to help you to do the same if you'd like to participate.

At 9am on 8th May, The Queen will address the nation and there will be a live stream on BBC – which is the exact same time that her father, King George VI, spoke to the UK 75 years ago, on the actual VE Day.

Here are some activities I would like you to choose from for the next couple of days:

  • Create a poster filled with facts about VE day.

  • Write your own fact file using subheadings and paragraphs.

  • Record yourself pretending to be a news anchor telling Britain the news.

  • Write questions about VE day and then quiz your family and friends.

You can find information to help you on:

Morse Code - https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/quizzes/bp-morse-code-adventure

Morse code is a communication system that represents the alphabet and numbers with a series of dots, dashes or a combination of both.

Can you write a secret coded message for your family to break!

Music

Try and learn the Horrible Histories VE Day song and perform it to your family.

If you and your family celebrate VE Day I would love to see photos, you can send them on purple mash 2email.

Have a good day and bank holiday weekend, I will add more work to do on Monday.
