Good morning all and happy Monday!


I hope you all had a good weekend (it was lovely that the sun made a bit of a reappearance!) and are looking forward to week 5 of distance learning. Great news, it's only a four day week this week! On Friday we will not be setting any distance learning as it is a bank holiday.


As many of you will know, May Day is traditionally held on a Monday but has been put back to Friday 8th May this year. VE Day, or Victory in Europe Day, marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe. The holiday will form part of a three-day weekend of commemorative events. So Friday will mark 75 years since WW2. To help celebrate VE day we will be doing different activities across the next three days which you will hopefully enjoy and learn more from. If you would like to find out more about VE day, there is lots on the internet and this is an informative report from Newsround.


Mrs Hulbert has also very kindly uploaded some music activities that you can do if you wish. These are suitable for all Key Stage 2 pupils so why not have a go with your brother/sister? There are three activities; 'Music in Secret', 'Morse Code Composition', and 'Glenn Miller- In the Mood'. If you do have a chance to have a go at any of these please let your class teacher or Mrs Hulbert know how you got on!


If you and your families are doing anything else to commemorate or celebrate VE day let us know, we would love to hear about it. 


To get your brains working on a Monday morning, we had an activity sent in from a parent that you are more than welcome to have a go at! Can you see how many words you can make from the word 'rainbow'? There are at least 100. You can only use the letters once in each word. We are looking for words at least two letters long, so 'a' and 'I' don't count.


Have a great week all :)
