History

Lesson 1

Using the map (links here ListofCountriesMapwork.pdf & Mapwork1.pdf): , we would like you to colour the countries according to whether they were Allies, Axis, Axis controlled or neutral.

Lesson 2 and 3

Research and find out about rationing during the Second World War.

http://www.primaryhomeworkhelp.co.uk/war/rationing2.html

https://www.iwm.org.uk/history/what-you-need-to-know-about-rationing-in-the-second-world-war

Make notes and create a leaflet full of the facts you have discovered.

Lesson 2

DT

Lesson 1 and 2

Design (and create if you like) a WW2 board game. You can take inspiration for other board games such as Guess Who, Snakes and Ladder or Chess. 

Lesson 3

Create a dinner menu using only food available during rationing, we have attached an example here: WW2-Rationing-Recipes.doc & WW2-Menu-ChartDTlesson2.doc

If possible, it would be great if you could have a go at creating a wartime dish. We have attached some recipes to give you some ideas. Take lots of pictures and send them in to your teacher, Good Luck.

PE

Just because you are in isolation doesn’t mean you can’t keep active. There are plenty of online activates that we have shared throughout lockdown that you can continue to do, maybe you can get people at home involved too.  Try to do at least one session per week.

Music

Music played a massive role during World War two, it boosted morale and brought people together. Have a go at learning a war time song and perform to the people at home.

Extra Information - Learning Apps

In addition to the lessons and activities prepared by your teachers, all children have unlimited access to a number of learning apps. In Year 5 these apps are:

DoodleMaths & DoodleTables

Edshed (Spelling Shed)

You should have logins for all three of these sites, and you will be used to using them at school. Try to use them daily to help improve your Maths and Spelling skills. They are all free to use and work on pretty much any online device - including many mobile phones. 

If you have any problems logging on, please either contact your class teacher via the class email address or contact Silverdale tech support at: appsupport@silverdaleprimaryacademy.org.uk
