If you haven’t already, why not have a go at your VE day challenge on this week’s Home Learning? If you have, maybe try another year groups’ challenge?

Also, Ashfield District Council have put together a range of activities that the whole family can enjoy! These include learning dances hosted by Believe Academy, hair tutorials and sing-alongs. Click here for more info. 

We would love to see how you’re celebrating the day! Send us photos of what you're up to. 

As well as all of the VE Day excitement, Year 6 – don’t forget today is your BATTLE day on Times Tables Rock Stars. Each class will compete against each other to see who can collect the most coins during the day. Who will end up on top? 6ED? 6AW?
The winning class from each year group will go through to next week’s semi-final and maybe even on to the final! It’s all to play for! Login by clicking here.
