VE Day Celebrations

 

Good morning everybody!

Today is a bank holiday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE day (Victory in Europe Day), a day which marked the end of the Second World War.

We have put together some fun activities that you and your family could do to celebrate!

*Look through the VE Day Powerpoint and talk about what happened, why people were celebrating and how they celebrated.

*Watch the Horrible Histories VE Day song, can you spot the video clips from the past? https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/watch/horrible-histories-songs-ve-day-song

*Make some bunting to decorate your house, you could draw or paint the Union Jack on it!

*Make some scones using the recipe we have attached and have your own afternoon tea with your family

*Learn the words to “God Save the Queen” and sing it to your grown ups

*Write a letter of thanks to the brave soldiers that fought in the war

*Design and make a VE Day medal for the brave soldiers who fought in the war

*Take some pictures of your day, can you change them to black and white or sepia like they would have been back then?

*Record your own radio broadcast announcing that the war is finally over

*Make a newspaper front page or write an article about the war ending

*Write about how you would have felt when you heard that the war was over

*Make a postcard for a family member that you cannot celebrate with. You can draw what you did on one side and write a message on the back

*Visit the RBLI Facebook Page and learn how to do some Lindy Hop dancing! https://www.facebook.com/157698724246846/videos/2860294240723341/

*Listen to some of the music that was popular during World War 2, how is it different from the music we listen to now? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgXyVL7KgAY&list=PLCTBQGxjOaqGfZzqBHGLkI9cYaNB1DRES&index=1

 

We would love to see how you all celebrate! Please share your celebrations with us either on Tapestry or our Facebook page! We hope you all have a lovely day!
