VE day 75th Anniversary – 8th May 2020
On Friday 8th May we celebrate the end of World War Two in Europe. This year is the 75th Anniversary of the signing of the peace treaty. The bank holiday has been moved to Friday so that we could mark this occasion. Due to current circumstances these events will now be in our homes. We have put together this list is you would like to learn more or want to celebrate this event.
- This Video from the BBC tells you more about the events leading up to and during VE day in 1945.
- You can read some more information on the Newsround website:
- Watch the video of a veteran talking about his experiences:
- Have a look through the information on the VE day Home Learning KS2 document. Take some time to answer the questions. If you want, you could complete some or all of the activities: the VE day menu, poster and diary can be done on paper from home. Remember to make them colourful.
The Lindy Hop tutorial can be found here:

On the day:
There will be a 2 minutes silence at 11am “to honour the service and sacrifice of the Second World War generation and reflect on the devastating impact Covid-19 has had on so many lives across the world.” As a family you might like to join in. The Royal British legion suggest standing outside your home, in a window or marking it in your house.
As a family you might also like to follow the Royal British Legions live stream from 11:15am on Friday.
You might like to plan a VE day party for your family. Ideas for food and music can be found here:
Hope you will find it easy to follow.
We would usually point you towards the 'Friday Fun', 'Keeping Active' and 'Pick n Mix' links for home learning on a Friday but this week we have put something together that will help younger children gain an understanding of the significance of VE Day.
Perhaps begin with the simple powerpoint below then dip into the many activities on offer in the PDF document.

As head of Science at Park View I’ve gathered up some fun Science related experiments and ideas that I’m sure you would have a great time trying them out at home. They are really easy to carry out as many of them only require daily household items and if you don’t have something you could be creative and try a close replacement for it.
I’ve enjoyed exploring them and hope that you do too.
If you try them and are successful, feel free to send some pictures to the Admin office email address: firstname.lastname@example.org who will share them with staff at school.
Robotics Drawing and Story Writing Competitions for Children
The competitions are hosted by the EPSRC UK Robotics and Autonomous Systems Network as part of (22nd – 28th June), a 7-day celebration of robotics science spanning hundreds of public events and activities up and down the country.
The “” writing competition is open to all Key Stage 2 children (aged 7 - 11 years old), and challenges competition participants to write an 800-word story featuring any kind of robot their imagination can conjure. The story could take place on Earth, in space or even on another planet!
For the “” competition, children in Key Stage 1 (aged 5 – 7 years old) have the chance to draw a robot that they’d like to see in the future. The robot could be designed to accomplish any task or job – the sky’s the limit! The children will be able to submit a robot drawing, up to 200-word description, and five key features (labelled on the drawing).
The two new competitions will be judged by robotics experts from the ESPRC UK-RAS Network, plus two very special invited literary and art & design judges. The drawing competition will be judged by Zoë Smith, Producer at Tate Kids, and the writing competition will be judged by award-winning writer AF Harrold, author of The Imaginary and the popular Greta Zargo series.
There are fabulous prizes on offer, including a Makeblock Programmable robot kit (courtesy of Pipebots), a Thames Komos Robotics Experiment kit (provided by Brains on Board), plus some unique and exclusive prizes courtesy of our guest judges.
The competitions close for entries on the 8th June 2020
Enjoy a Story together:

Thursday 23rd April:
The BBC daily lessons are a really valuable resource that we would like to use more with your children. The fact there is a short teaching input will really support the children’s learning. Teachers will still be choosing the most relevant ones and posting them on the class pages – this means the teachers are still very much in tune with what learning the children are undertaking.
This is the website if you wanted to use the lessons on other days or any of their other resources. https://www.bbc.co.uk/bitesize/dailylessons They do some lovely lessons covering History, Geography, Art and Music.
Another bonus of using these lessons is the children can watch them on the TV. From Monday to Friday, you’ll be able to watch Bitesize Daily on BBC Red Button from 9am to 11am, and again on BBC iPlayer.
