Wednesday

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.

Vera Lynn- We’ll Meet Again https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HsM_VmN6ytk

This is a very poignant song at the moment. On Friday 8th May there will be a National Singalong of this song after the Queen has spoken at 9pm. Here are the lyrics if you would like to learn them.

We'll meet again,

Don't know where,

Don't know when

But I know we'll meet again some sunny day

 

Keep smiling through,

Just like you always do

'Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

 

So will you please say "Hello"

To the folks that I know?

Tell them I won't be long

They'll be happy to know

That as you saw me go

I was singing this song

 

We'll meet again,

Don't know where,

Don't know when

But I know we'll meet again some sunny day

 

We'll meet again,

Don't know where

Don't know when.

But I know we'll meet again some sunny day.

 

Keep smiling through

Just like you always do,

'Til the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

 

So will you please say "Hello"

To the folks that I know?

Tell them I won't be long.

They'll be happy to know

That as you saw me go,

I was singin' this song.

 

We'll meet again,

Don't know where,

Don't know when

But I know we'll meet again some sunny day
