As you’ll be aware, Friday 8th May is a Bank Holiday (although in these strange times it may not feel like it) to commemorate VE Day – the ending of World War Two in Europe. As a School we had intended to mark this event, but as with the events around the country, this was not to be. However, this is still a significant anniversary in our nation’s history, and as such we would still encourage you to mark it at home if possible.
Key Stage 3 History lessons for that week will focus on VE Day, and teachers will share activities and resources with your child via Frog next week.
However, beyond these activities, you may wish to consider getting involved in the activity suggested on the BBC website:
There are also some great suggestions at:
The British Legion website is also very good in outlining how we can mark VE Day. For example: https://www.britishlegion.org.uk/stories/ve-day-singalong (and in current circumstances, maybe the words have added poignancy).
In the absence of the wider planned events, such an opportunity does still help us come together as a community, even in these difficult times.
