  • VE day

    Look on the homework tab for activities
    Tomorrow is VE day, the 75th anniversary which marks the end of the secong World War. It’s a time to think about the soldiers, nurses, doctors and the land army who worked so hard to stop Hitler taking over Europe. On that day the people of the UK came together and partyied on the streets. We have put some history activities together for you to find out about Churchill, the war, the king and a chance for you to create a time line from 1945 to now of your living family. There are links for you to follow to find out more. You might make bunting and tea. I’ve made a fruit cake from a recipe used at that time.
