Creative Tasks W/c 4th May 2020
Note for parents
When learning about historical events, children often have lots of questions which can go in many different ways. In school, children learn about the affects of the war through childhood evacuation (Year 5 and 6), Remembrance Day celebrations and other national recognised events such as the Centenary of the First World War and D Day celebrations. Therefore, the activities for this have been chosen so they focus on celebration and remembrance rather than the events, causes and outcomes of wars.
If you feel that your child has a particular interest and is ready to discuss this time period in more detail you may wish to use the BBC Bitesize KS2 website for more information. Please remember that for some children the topic of war is both worrying and scary. It is important that children have an understanding of the past and how it affects us, but we also need to be aware of how this might make individual children feel.
Plan or create some cakes, biscuits or sweet treats to celebrate the VE Day on Friday 8th May.
Lots of events were planned including street parties across the country, think about what you would make to celebrate at a street party.
You might want to use the link to decorate some bunting or create your own to decorate your home.
If you do not have any baking ingredients, plan a VE Day celebration menu. What might you eat to celebrate the day? Think about traditional foods, party foods and possibly food from the 1940s. You could choose your favourite foods.
