Today we have our final task to celebrate VE Day. As there will be lots of VE Day parties tomorrow, why don't you get yourself into a 1940's party mood!!!!! Listen to some music, this one is by The Andrews Sisters called Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy from 1941. Teach yourself some dance moves from the 1940's, swing dance was popular then. There are lots of step by step dance tutorials on You Tube. Maybe you could have a go with a grown up. Film yourselves and tweet us! Finally have a
look at the clothes that were worn in the 1940's. The men dressed very smartly, the women wore knee length dresses. Maybe you could get all dressed up in your pretty dresses and smart clothes to dance in.
Finally, as tomorrow is a Bank Holiday there will not be any new activities added until Monday 11th May. Have a lovely weekend.
Have lots of fun and tweet us @Bryncethincl6 your VE Day celebrations!
Please could class 6 take a moment to fill in this survey about the work they are doing on google classroom. Thank you.

As you know this Friday 8th May, people across Britain will be celebrating VE Day. Lots of people will be decorating their houses and gardens with bunting.
Today's task is for you to make some VE Day bunting that you could put up at home. You could cut out, paint and decorate some cardboard boxes that were going to be recycled, print out some templates, like the one below. Maybe you could be super creative and make your own. Why not add some glitter for some extra sparkle?
Another Spy task for you today. Try Morse Code. Use the Chart below to write your name. Too easy? Try writing some sentences using Morse Code for your family to crack. Maybe they could write some for you! Still too easy?? Try the Morse Code quiz on the Blue Peter website. See if you can be a top Spy and tweet us the answer! @BryncethinCL6 add @Cbbc #Blue Peter. Otherwise let us know the answer via Google Classroom!

Have fun getting creative. Tweet us @BryncethinCL6 with your medal and hero.

Don't forget to join in with Joe Wickes every morning too! It's completely "eggs"hausting!!
As a small group, or just with an adult, have fun reading the Easter story together and answer the questions at the bottom of the pages. At the end, design a picture or collage of your favourite part of the story.
Let's get messy - Make some salt dough creations
Salt Dough Easter Eggs
250g plain flour
125g - salt
125ml - warm water
Put the salt and flour into a bowl
Add small amounts of water at a time and mix together with a wooden spoon.
Once it starts coming together you will need to use your hands.
Knead the dough for at least 5 minutes
Once your dough is ready, roll out to no more than 1cm thick
Create your egg shapes in the dough
Leave on a windowsill to harden. This could take a few days. Remember to turn them over so both sides harden.
Once completely hard, decorate with pretty patterns and bright colours.
