75th Anniversary of VE Day – 8th May 1945

 

This Friday, 8th May, sees the 75th anniversary of VE Day, signalling the end of the Second World War in Europe.

 

As well as having a look at the presentation, which tells you lots about the important events of World War II, here are some activities you might enjoy at home over this bank holiday weekend.

  • Make your own VE Day bunting and/or flags, just like the ones in the photographs – what messages would you put on it for this year? There are some bunting templates on Twinkl if you need them!
  • During the war people wrote letters to each other – they often spoke about the fun they would have when the war was over. Write a letter to a friend or relative about what you are looking forward to doing when the current restrictions lift.
  • Organise a house tea party for VE Day with just the people you live with. What games and activities should you play? (Jam sandwiches were popular during the war – perhaps you can make some of those?)
  • Listen to the stories of people from the Second World War and remember VE Day:

  • Using the images and the captions to write a story about VE Day, imagining that you are one of the people there.
  • In the news recently there has been a lot of stories about Captain Tom Moore, a Second World War veteran – can you find out what he did during the Second World War?
  • Find out how different people in Europe acknowledged and commemorated VE Day.
  • Have a look at Rushmoor Borough Council's VE Day page https://www.rushmoor.gov.uk/VEDay which has lots of actvities and links.
