Hi everyone,

I hope you and your families are keeping safe and well. We can’t wait to see you all back at school because we are missing you so much.

I am sure many of you know that this week is rather special because it’s the 75th Anniversary

of VE day.


Can you find out what VE day was ?

There are so many fantastic resources online which Miss Giles-Brewster put together last week which you can find here.




Famous TV presenter and Historian Dan Snow has put together some great VE day challenges that you can find here.


The challenge

Weā€™re asking you to think about how you would tell the story of VE Day today. There are lots of ways you could bring the story of VE Day to life. You could:

  • Write a short news report in the style of today or 75 years ago
  • Make a short video that tells the story of VE Day, either in the style of 75 years ago or
  • how you would tell it today
  • Design a newspaper front page or article
  • Write or perform a poem, song, drawing or other work of art
  • Share the story of someone in your family or area who was involved in the War
  • Write or perform a short play about VE Day and what it would have been like 75 years ago

If you go to the Website Dan has links to great resources to help with these tasks.


Twinkl is another great website that is full of great resources and crafting ideas such as VE day bunting, model aeroplanes and wartime recipes.
