Wider Curriculum

Cross Curricular project - Countries of the World

We're having a break from projects this week as we'd like you to focus on some of the VE celebration work. It might be a chance to catch up on previous weeks work for some of you! More chapters to follow next week.

History - VE day


On Friday 8th May we celebrate VE Day (Victory in Europe Day). It is the day on which Allied forces formally announced the surrender of Germany, which brought the end of WWII.


The Supermarine Spitfire is a British single-seat fighter aircraft that was used by the Royal Air Force and other Allied countries before, during, and after World War II. With a top speed of 594 km/h many variants of the Spitfire were built, using several wing configurations.

On Thursday 30th April two historic aircrafts from the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight performed a special flypast over Captain Tom Moore's home to mark his 100th birthday. You can watch the video of the flypast here to really appreciate the true beauty of them.


Art - Sketching a spitfire

Look at the attached pictures and have a go at sketching a Spitfire, look carefully at the detail and think about tonal sketching, where there are no visible lines.

DT - Cooking

Throughout World War 2, rationing and low food supplies meant that people had to be able to cook with the ingredients they had available. Milk, cheese and eggs, in particular, were in short supply. This encouraged several eggless recipes, such as eggless cake and eggless sponge.

Other meals included spam hash, cottage pie and bubble and squeak. 

Why not try one of these recipes?


Remember it is recommended you do 1hour of physical activity everyday. 

Use previous learning weeks to access ideas for keeping active but here are a few more.
