Week Commencing 4th May

This week there is a Times Table Rock Stars Inter School competition.  This lasts all week and hopefully, with your help, we can get the Times Table Rock Stars trophy back to Willington School.  Don't forget to tell your friends about this (at a socially safe distance of course).  Good luck and rock on!!!



This week for PE, the topic is football.  Click on the link below to loads of different activities which you can do in your garden or inside your home based on the topic of football.  There is a different activity to do each day of the week too!


The task this week is to write a letter based on the events of WW2 VE Day.  Using the website links below, have a look at the videos and images of what happened on VE Day.  Once you have looked at these, imagine that you tool part in the celebrations and write a letter to a member of your family about the events which took place.

VE Day Comprehension - choose one of three different levels of challenge


This week is the local school Times Table Rock Star Challenge.  Each term, the local schools have a competition to see who can win the Times Table Rock Stars trophy.  Willington School won it during the autumn term, but unfortunately a different school won it last term.  Can you help us to win the trophy back?  The competition starts at 9am on Monday until 9am the following Monday.  There will be 8 schools taking part in the competition.  Good luck and let's hopefully win the trophy back!


I have included links to either the White Rose Maths, I See Maths or the BBC Maths lessons below.  Feel free to do either of these series of lessons.  Please send in some of your work to school through the home learning link on the website so we can have a look at it.


I have also included a Maths challenge where the children need to answer clues using their mathematical knowledge to solve the puzzle.



For Science this week, watch the video below which takes you on a tour around Longleat Safari Park.  Learn about the different animals and then design a poster or presentation which explains how some of the animals adapted to their natural environments.


This Friday marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day (Victory In Europe Day) at the end of WW2.  Therefore the topic this week will be based around this subject.  Below are some ideas of activities which you could make or do on the topic of VE Day.  They include making bunting, learning the words of Vera Lynn's song 'We'll Meet Again' (which will be sung on doorstops across the country) and lots of other activities too.  Using the information below, can you create a double-page spread about VE Day?  Could you create one of the recipes which people would have eaten at their VE Day celebration?  Could you use the step-by-step drawing of a Lancaster Bomber and send a copy to school through the home learning link?
