With the exception of maths, all of today's tasks are focused on the 75th anniversary of VE Day, which is this coming bank holiday Friday. If you are still a little uncertain about what VE Day commemorates and celebrates click on the link below for some resources.

 

 

English Task

Your English task today is inspired by VE day.

 

You have to write a letter from the perspective of a child being evacuated from London. Many children left London and other large cities, during the war, to avoid the risk of bombing.

Watch the videos below to help you get a better understanding of what this would have been like. I have also attached a link to a page that contains lots of information about the evacuation of children, during WW2.

Use these resources to influence your writing and help you to include some rich, historical detail in your work. Remember to make your writing as descriptive as possible, and really try to get into the mindset of a child from this period.
