Good morning Year 2,

I hope that you all had a wonderful day yesterday and that you all enjoyed watching the May Procession. Your photographs were lovely. Seeing you all holding your beautiful flowers made it very special indeed. We will continue to pray to Our Lady during this special month of May.

In the table below you will find today’s learning activities. You will notice that there is a theme running through our learning. We celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day on Friday. Victory in Europe Day, generally known as VE Day marks the end of World War II. I have planned some of your learning activities this week around the theme of World War II and VE Day. 

I have included a quick update on the Year 2 allotment. Enjoy the video!

If you have any questions or if you need any help.. you know where to find me.. year2@popepaul.herts.sch.uk

Miss Davey

History Tuesday 5th May 2020
WALT: Know about the ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign.The ‘Dig for Victory’ campaign was set up during World War II by the British Ministry of Agriculture. Men and women across the country were encouraged to grow their own food in times of harsh rationing. Open spaces everywhere were transformed into allotments, from domestic gardens to public parks – even the lawns outside the Tower of London were turned into vegetable patches.

Potatoes played a vital role in feeding the nation during World War II. Before the war, Britain imported 55 million tonnes of food a year, once war began this dropped to 12 million tonnes and resulted in rationing of the food that was available. The ‘Dig for Victory’ encourage people to grow their own potatoes and vegetables and Potato Pete became a well-known character.

Create a poster that could have been used during the war to encourage the public to ‘grow their own’.

His mother was so proud of his work.

Her baby brother was learning to walk.

There was nothing in the fridge so they went out for dinner.
