Please find below, an email I received from St Albans Cathedral learning department. There are some links that are worth watching!
I am delighted to announce that another free virtual history video is now available for your school to use. Ideal for Key Stage 2, this week we are looking at life in the Victorian Classroom, although children studying any period of history will find it entertaining and educational.
To view the video, please go to https://youtu.be/IPV1cjuodsc
Meanwhile, our previous videos about the Romans, the Saxons, the Medieval Monks and the Tudors are still available too, having been watched over 5000 times across all social media formats so far. To view them, please go to:

D Day activities
VE Day 2020
I am sure you will have heard in the news that this coming Friday is a Bank Holiday. The reason for this being that May 8 2020 marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day, which was the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe.
Please find some activities below to try if you would like to join in the celebrations!
