In school today, the children learnt all about V.E. day. We were lucky enough to learn more about the armed forces and their work from Mr. Wagg who brought in lots of memorabilia from World war II. Some of us were able to try on the uniforms and imagine what it would be like wearing the heavy woollen uniforms.
We then created some decorations – bunting, flags and paper hats ready for our afternoon celebration.
Lily and Isabella made lemonade, using a wartime recipe and we also had some scones made with carrot instead of egg as these were rationed in the war.
The children enjoyed their party in the sunshine.
I hope you enjoy your V.E. day celebrations.
Mrs Addis and Mrs Reader
