The 8th of May 2020 marks 75th celebration of Victory for Europe Day. Victory in Europe Day, better known as VE Day refers to the end of World War II in Europe.
On 8th May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end.
I have attached some fact files for you to find out more about VE day and there are some questions you can answer (parents – there are also answers there too). The reading has a range of challenges you can choose from shown by the number of stars.
I have also attached a range of poems. Please choose at least one to read and explore the following:
- Can you find any rhyming words?
- Can you spot any patterns?
- Are there any words or vocabulary you don’t understand – find out what they mean.
- Research further about VE day or even have a go at making your own poem (e.g. an acrostic poem for the word VICTORY)
As well as this I encourage you to explore your creative side. For example you could:
- Create a poster for VE day
- Draw/paint/collage a Union Jack flag
- Design and create a spit fire
- make a picnic with your family and have your own ‘street’/garden party
- Learn a song and perform it – see previous post for music activities
We look forward to see what you do to celebrate, remember to send us pictures!
