Activities to complete today (if you can):
Click on Week 8, Friday Maths Challenge – This will give you a chance to show off what you have learned this week in maths!
(Remember – if this material to too hard for your child at this stage in their development or without the resources they would have access to in school – please do not worry about doing this. You are also welcome to try lower year group work if you feel this would be beneficial. Please contact me if you think this applies to yourself.)
p.s. Please message me to let me know when you have done your maths work – it is nice to see it, as I cannot see it like I could on Purple Mash. Thanks!
Writing Task: This week focuses on the start of the war and what life was like for evacuees. When following links online, parents should monitor that children are remaining on that page only and are keeping safe online.
Based on all you have read and watched this week, write a short story about a child being evacuated in World War Two.
You may wish to use the following plot structure for your story:
1. The announcement of war - Open your story with your character hearing the news that Britain is at war. Where are they and who are they with? How do they feel? How do others in the family feel?
2. Evacuation - Your next section could be your character hearing the news that they are to be evacuated, packing their belongings and waving goodbye to their family.
3. Your next section may be describing your character’s arrival in the countryside, being collected by the billeting officer and taken to their new ‘home’. Think about describing the setting of the countryside compared to their life in the city and describing your character’s emotions throughout this scene.
4. Settling into a new home - You may wish to end your short story describing what your character’s new home is like. How are they settling in? Do they like the household they have been taken to?
Don’t forget to check your punctuation and spelling as you go. Reading to a family member may help with this. Once you have written your story, you may want to read it aloud to a family member or even record the reading to send to me!
