VE Day – 75th Anniversary

This Friday, 8th May, we mark 75 years since VE Day.

VE Day, which stands for Victory in Europe Day, was the day when allied forces announced the surrender of Germany in Europe on May 8th, 1945. It marked the end of Adolf Hitler’s reign and was a cause for celebration all over the world. At 3pm that day, Prime Minister Winston Churchill told the nation that the war was over. In London, a crowd of 50,000 celebrated the momentous event in Piccadilly Circus, cheering and waving flags in the street. This year is particularly poignant, given that it’s the 75th anniversary of VE Day.


Even though we are in Lockdown there are still plenty of ways you can get involved in the big day.  You could have a special VE Day celebrations picnic or afternoon tea with your family and decorate your house with flags and bunting. You could even make some VE Day snacks and treats.


I will be adding some activities, tasks and links each day this week.


For today's task, play the video below (pause it when you need to) and answer the questions - post your answers on our class bog or email them to me at school.

VE Day – 75th Anniversary

In his VE Day speech, Winston Churchill said,

“Do not despair, do not yield to violence and tyranny, march straight forward.”

How can you keep going when you face difficult or worrying times?

Write your own speech for the day we can celebrate lockdown being over and being able to see our friends and family again.

"God bless you all. This is your victory! It is the victory of the cause of freedom in every land. In all our long history we have never seen a greater day than this. Everyone, man or woman, has done their best. Everyone has tried. Neither the long years, nor the dangers, nor the fierce attacks of the enemy, have in any way weakened the independent resolve of the British nation. God bless you all..."
