Wednesday 6th & Thursday 7th May 2020 - VE Day Get Involved
This year our Mayday bank holiday changed from a Monday to a Friday, this is to celebrate the 75th anniversary of the VE Day celebrations. You might be wondering, what’s that? VE Day stands for Victory in Europe and it marks the formal defeat of Germany in World War 2. Lots of events and celebrations were planned to celebrate this, some streets having street parties the way they did in 1945. Unfortunately, due to lockdown restrictions, these events have had to be cancelled. However, some people are still decorating their houses and some streets are holding picnics in their front gardens, so we can still see our neighbours, but keep safe.
Your get involved challenge for today and tomorrow is to find out more about VE Day and create a poster, leaflet, presentation or video telling us what you have found out about this important day. If you choose to create a poster you might like to display it in your window on Friday to help celebrate.
Here are some links to help you find out more.
Here is a link to some bunting you could print out and colour to display in your house; or you could create your own VE Day bunting!
or google search colouring heroes Lego VE Day bunting to download Lego figure ones.
Happy creating and don’t forget to share with us what you have found out and made, or if you celebrated the day in a special way at firstname.lastname@example.org !
Update: After taking the lead from the teachers on Tuesday, the children are the winners! Well done to all who took part.
Certificates can be found at https://www.combertonprimary.com/times-tables-rocks/ and https://www.combertonprimary.com/numbots/ .
Monday 4th & Tuesday 5th May 2020 - TT Rockstars battle
From 9 am on Monday, teachers and students can battle for the title of TTRockstar champion. Gain points for every game you play in any venue, and see the points increase throughout the two days. The more children that play, the more points will be won, so make sure you let everyone know this is happening!
Will you let the teachers win??
Certificates will be awarded for the Most Valuable players over the two days and be placed in a TTRocks Hall of Fame on the website.
KS1 will continue to use Numbots over the next two days and we will be looking to award certificates for those children who have improved throughout that time.
Let battle commence!
