We’d like to share the following projects which you could easily do at home, and make your VE Day Decorations look awesome. This year, our staff will be sharing their VE Decorations ‘social distancing’ style! From afternoon tea in the front garden, to window displays and social distanced street parties. We can’t wait to see what our communities can do together, whilst being safely apart.
Here’s a couple of ideas to get your started!
VE Day Bunting – the classic celebration decoration, remember you can make bunting from almost anything, so get creative, recycle where possible, and the VE Day colours are Red, White and Blue…
Union Jack Craft – From a classic Colour-In Union Jack, or something more unusual, we’ll be so happy to see your creations. Display in your window for your neighbours and community to see.
Wartime Recipes – We found some awesome recipes on Twinkl for food that was eaten during the Second World War. Search ‘Wartime Recipes Booklet’ in Twinkl for full ingredient list and step by step instructions on how to make Cottage Pie, Eggless Chocolate Cake, Bubble and Squeak, Trench Stew, Bread Pudding, Peach Crumble and more.
Thank You Captain Tom Moore
100 year old War Hero and extraordinary fundraiser Tom Moore has raised over £32 million for the NHS, what a legend. You could create a poster to display in your window. Or you could write about Tom, what words would you use to describe him? Do you know the two records he is in the Guinness World Records Book for?
Tom was awarded 4 medals for his war service, 1939-1945 Star, Burma Star, Defence Medal and War Medal 1939-1945. Can you design your own medal?
Our final activity for this week is from Cosmic Kids Yoga on YouTube. Their recent upload ‘How to deal with anxiety & feel better!’ is so calming and has a thoughtful approach to addressing feelings and learning to ‘Be the pond’. During this strange time, keep reflecting on how you are growing, learning and living. There are some lovely, calming phrases used in this meditation, our favourite is…
‘Be kind to yourself, be kind to others and all will be well’
