TOPIC TASK: VE DAY 75th Anniversary Celebrations

 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 share hope for the future. It will be an opportunity for us all to remember the enormous sacrifices that were made at home and abroad and to joyously celebrate as people did 75 years ago, the arrival of peace in Europe. This week’s topic reflects this. There are lots of creative activities for you to look at this week and we hope that you enjoy them. We have attached some additional links below the Topic Web to help – lots of art, craft and cooking. I hope you have a great week and let’s celebrate VE day this Friday!

Fact – Did you know: on VE Day 75 Years ago, Mrs Nicolson, wife of James Nicolson VC who appears on our school memorial, received the tragic news that he was lost at sea.
