Friday 8th May - VE Day

VE Day

When VE Day dawns on 8th May 2020 it will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of the war in Europe. Years of carnage and destruction had come to an end and millions of people took to the streets and pubs to celebrate peace, mourn their loved – ones and to hope for the future, but not forgetting those still in conflict until 15th August when it was announced that Japan had surrendered unconditionally to the Allies, effectively ending World War II.


This was to be a big celebration across the country on this day (and you were to have day off school!) So perhaps you could take a break from home school on Friday and do some of the activities below instead. laugh

Dylan and his sister have made a great video of facts about VE DAY - Super job!
