How are you getting on with your PE? We all know that keeping active is so important and that recommendations say an hour of sweaty activity a day, and we also know that you’ve done lots – ball games, cycling, trampolining, running (we’ve seen lots of great photos) – but have you thought about dancing? If you’re a fan of shows like Strictly, how would you like to learn to dance like the stars? With this tutorial (click here), you too can learn the Lindy Hop? You could even be dancing it this weekend.
This week, spend some time thinking about money. Set up your own supermarket using items from the cupboards. Make sure you do price labels. Now, practise buying a few things, add up the total. Work out the change from a £10 or £5 note. If you can use real money this helps (but be sure to give it back at the end).
Watch the video below to see actual footage from a street party in Surrey. Imagine you were living in the time of the first VE day celebration in May 1945, and you also had a party. Write your diary entry for the end of your celebration day. Who did you see? Did you have a street party? What party food did you eat and did you play games? How did you and your family feel?
All this week we're thinking about
Perhaps you can learn some of the songs that would have been sung at the time? Listen to Dame Vera Lynn, how is the song different to today’s music? Can you learn some of the words? Imagine you had grown up in the war, how do you think this song would have made you feel?
