Thursday 7th May

Good Morning everyone,


Today is going to be a little bit different. We will continue with Maths but then I would like you to find out more about VE (Victory over Europe) day, which is a special day that is  being celebrated tomorrow.


There are a range of activities to do (just choose 1 or 2) but I would love everybody to make some bunting and we can all look like we are celebrating together. I will then share all the pictures on class story. There are more details below.


Thank you again for all your hard work. You are all Superstars!

Warm-up – Can you practice halving numbers


Pick a number up to 10, can your child recognise the corresponding halving fact? Re-enforce numbers they struggle with practical objects.

When they are confident move onto numbers 12,14,16,18,20.

The aim is for rapid recall. Make links with their double facts

Practice using Hit the button - Halve numbers


Complete the lesson on the White Rose hub website (see links below)


Summer Term week 2: Lesson 4 – Problem solving




  • Please watch the video to support your understanding.
  • Try the sheet below.
  • Check your work against the answers (attached below).


Either print and complete, write the answers on a separate sheet or discuss the answers with an adult or older brother or sister.






It is 75 years since VE (Victory over Europe) day tomorrow and I would like you to create some bunting. There is a video below which explains all about what VE day is.


Watch the powerpoint below with your child to explain about what VE day is all about.


Your bunting could be printed off or you could make a template (a triangle) using cardboard. I would like you to make the bunting special to you. Can you write messages on it to describe how are you feeling during lock down? Or what have you enjoyed? Or what have you learnt? You could draw a picture of yourself and your family or write messages of support for the key workers. Why not ask your family to make one to and then you could hang it up around your house on Friday?


Below are a range of other activities that you could do to celebrate VE day (Remember, just choose the ones you like best). There will be no additional activities posted tomorrow so you can do some tomorrow if you want!  


 ‘Stay At Home’ Street Party


Design your own VE Day party invitation or create your own Union Jack flag bunting or make a Union Jack flag out of Lego!


Can you make VE buns to celebrate?

Crack The Codes

Phonetic Alphabet

Wartime Recipes

With one rationed egg and a packet of powdered milk in the larder, World War II’s home cooks had to be creative. Find out what families were eating over 75 years ago.

Have a look at the link below for some wartime recipes.

 Design and make your own Spitfire. You could make it out of paper, wood, recycled materials, etc. Test out your design. How far does it glide?
