VE Day

Since 1945, the end of World War Two in Europe has been marked by Victory in Europe Day, better known as VE Day.

On 8th May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before.

This year, the 8th May 2020 will mark 75 years since the first VE Day.

In school we have a record of how children at our school celebrated VE day 75 years ago. There were parties in school and street parties all around our school community.

Child evacuees living in our community would of been really excited as this meant they would be going home.

We have put together some learning activities to help you understand about this important date in history and celebrate like the children did 75 years ago.

 There is a famous World War II war song sang by a woman called Dame Vera Lynn. The words of the song are very relevant at the moment.

'We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when - but I know we'll meet again some sunny day'

I can't wait to see you all again!
