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.
As well as doing the maths online try to set yourself puzzles and challenges. This week try planning a party (it could be a VE day party) – think about everything you would like and then find the costs (use online shopping sites). Imagine that you don’t have enough money, give yourself a new budget and then replan – make notes on how you are saving money and how much you save.
Using your Topic research, can you write a diary entry imagining that you were someone who experienced VE day? It could be from the point of view of a child, soldier or even one of England’s rulers. Before you start writing, make sure that you get into character – you could make a character chart, draw your character in the middle and add questions, thoughts and key words around the outside. Look at the youngest child in this photo – what do you think was going through her mind? What would a grown-up say to her?
