75th anniversary of VE Day
"It is vital that current and future generations have the opportunity to learn about the experiences of those who lived and served, both at home and abroad, throughout the Second World War. It is thanks to their efforts and sacrifices that we now have the freedom and relative peace that so many of us take for granted today.”
Please find below a selection of resources to help your child understand the significance of remembrance and its importance to society today.
Like many others, Second World War veteran Ian Forsyth had been looking forward to taking part in a special VE Day celebration in May until the lockdown forced its postponement.
He said: “While we cannot congregate to celebrate VE Day, it is heartening to know that we have something in place that will allow us to come together as a country and learn about what was an incredibly important moment in our history. I would encourage all youngsters to get online to find out more about what life was like 75 years ago."
Virtual VE day party
We encourage you all to host your own VE day party, make your own bunting, bake some poppy biscuits/cakes and celebrate with your family listing to some wartime music! Take a photo of your party and send to your Y3 teacher.
You are all invited to raise a toast with Y3 at 3pm on Friday 8th May. Decorate your house with the resources provided and see if you can find clothes at home to dress how they would have in 1945. Look forward to seeing you all then!
Mrs Platts, Miss Harrison and Miss Lowe
