Year 5 Wonderful Outstanding Work

Hello everyone,

We hope you are all well and enjoying the sunshine. This is a very special week as tomorrow commemorates the 75th anniversary of the end of World War 2 in Europe. It carried on a little longer in Japan. The day the war ended in Europe is known as VE (Victory in Europe) day and, as you can imagine, it was a very important and welcome day for the country after almost 6 years of war.
Although the plans to celebrate this anniversary have had to change due to the current situation, many organisations have posted suggestions for activities online. Here are some websites you might like to look at. - Our local council has a programme of online events throughout the day and lots of ideas for things to do. - The British Legion has put together a home learning pack for anyone who would like to know more about VE day. Look under the heading ‘VE day resources for home’. - Twinkl has a wartime recipe book for you to try. The recipes all contain ingredients that would have been available in wartime Britain. - If you want to know more, there are further learning activities here from the Historical association.

You have all been busy this week with your home learning packs. We have been sent some fabulous examples of your hard work and some of these are on display at the infant site. Keep an eye on Twitter as Mrs Shuttleworth will be posting some examples there. Here are some of the things you have been doing.  

We were very impressed with the information you discovered about Mary Anning – she is fascinating!

As you can see, there has been some excellent learning happening at home. Well done all of you and thank you to Olivia, Owen, Demi, Caleb, Freya, Anouk, Layla-Shay, Liam, Sienna, Phoebe and William for sending in their pictures.
We hope you have all been looking at the music lessons on Yumu. If you have not yet logged in, please contact the year 5  email address below and we will send your password to you.

Finally, here are a couple more activities you may be interested in. - – For all budding artists out there - We posted this link a while ago BUT… they have just added a video of Daniel Radcliffe reading the first chapter of Harry Potter and The Philosopher’s stone! What a treat for all you Potter fans out there! There will be other celebrities reading more of the book over the coming weeks.
Don’t forget, you can contact us for help, to send us pictures of your work or just to let us know how you are and what you are doing. Email   

We hope to see you very soon,

Mr Davies, Mrs McWilliam and Mrs Paish
