HAPPY VE DAY!
VE Day stands for 'Victory in Europe' Day. 75 years ago today the war ended for us and the other countries in Europe, although it continued in countries like Japan for another few months. People celebrated long into the night with dancing and bonfires!
You haven't been set any home learning today but I have popped a short video below that teaches you how to draw a Union Jack. Perhaps this could help if you wanted to make a flag or some bunting to go outside your house.
I have also put a link to some war time songs below if you want to listen. Perhaps listen to them with a family member and discuss how they make you feel, which one is your favourite and why.
I wonder if you are having a little street party today? (Remember you still need to stay 2 metres away from others) Or perhaps at 3pm you want to watch Churchill's speech on TV. He was the man in charge of our country when the war finished. Be sure to look up in the sky between 12 and 2pm this afternoon to see if you can spot a special plane called a Spitfire! (They were used in the war!)
Most importantly, have a lovely day with lots of fun, playing and yummy food! (If you don't have cake and scones in real life can you make some using playdough?) If you want to share any photos of your day on Twitter, feel free!

1. Physical Development Activity: This week the whole school have been set a dance challenge. You are all being asked to learn a dance using the video above and upload a video of yourselves to it. Your videos will be used to create a Fox Hill dance montage. Challenge yourselves! It is a tad tricky but I think you can do it!
Here is the final video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FP-z_hedvjA
2. Maths Activity: Last week you did a lot of work on 2D shapes. 2D shapes are flat. This week we will focus more on 3D shapes. They are not flat! Watch the YouTube video below about 3D shapes. Look around your home. Can you see anything that is similar to these shapes?
Look for a: cone, cylinder, cube, cuboid and pyramid. How do you know which 3D shape it is? Can you count how many faces it is? (Faces are the surfaces of the shape and can be flat or curved) How many edges does it have? (edges are around each face) Have a look at the sheet below. You can use 2 exercise hoops or draw 2 large circles on paper. Make sure they overlap (because some of your items might have come under both headings) and sort your items into the groups depending on the type of faces it has. Share photos of your shape hunt and item sorting on Twitter!

Watch the video above. Our story this week is a story about a real person. Her name was Amelia Earhart.
“When I grow up I want to be…”
Discuss your ideas with a family member and then write the end of the sentence. Use the checklist below and the sound mats at the bottom of this page to help you with your writing. I would love to see you holding this up and posing for a photo to put on Twitter. Maybe you can even dress up to show what you want to be, for example if you want to be a vet you could find lots of soft animal toys to have with you in your photo. I can’t wait to read your answers!
