History Celebrate VE Day

Date: 2nd May 2020 @ 6:35pm

Friday 8th May 75th Anniversary of VE Day

On Friday 8th May at 11am there will be 2 minutes silence.  It is 75 years since World War 2 ended in Europe. On this day we remember all the people, who were brave during the Second World War, and at 11 am we will pray for peace in the world. Some families might remember VE Day and celebrate this special anniversary.

 I remember the 50th Anniversary of VE day it was a very special day. We had a school party at St Julie’s and we put the tables on the playground to make a giant shape of the letters V E.  All the children and staff dressed up in red white and blue.  It was so hot that all the jellies melted and turned into drinks. We played games and sang songs from the 1940’s. We had a fun time.

 Let us hope it’s lovely and sunny again and you might be able to have a VE Day picnic. Please share your news about VE Day with us.

We are having a VE Day picnic in our garden. I have coloured in some flags and banners to decorate outside. My mum said she remembers the 50th celebration when she was at St Julies. She said it was a very hot day with lots of party food

Wow! You have been very busy. It sounds like you've made lots of decorations already and I think your house will look amazing on VE Day. I'm sure you will help to plan the picnic too. Your mum was in the Juniors when it was the 25th Anniversary and she was a super learner just like you. Ask your mum if she remembers any of the songs from the sing-a-long in the hall. Maybe you could learn to sing them too and have a sing song at your picnic. We can't wait to hear all about your VE Day party.

We are having VE Day picnic, I have wrote a shopping list for our online shopping. I am looking forward to getting ready for our picnic and already know the red, white and blue clothes that I’ll be wearing. I have been colouring in flags and banners. I am going to do the two minutes silence to remember all the people who fought in the war. I’ll ask Mummy to send you a picture. We have been listening to and learning songs.

How exciting Gracie. You are very organised in your house.I can't wait to see some more of your lovely photos.
Was your mummy at St. Julies school when we had the 50th celebrations like Noah's mummmy was?
Does she remember the street party we had on the playground?

It was such a lovely day, we had lots of fun. We had a little picnic party in the front garden and then later on we had afternoon tea. Other neighbours were out in their garden and we spoke to them from a distance. I even had a mocktail which was lovely. I played some 1940s games with Isabella. There was lots of music and songs from the 1940s and I liked dancing to them. I watched the two minutes silence and listened to Winston Churchill’s speech.
It was a lovely day and lots of fun. The house was decorated from all the things that we had made and painted.

No Mummy had left at Julie’s when it was the 50th anniversary.

Stay safe. I miss you all xxx

That's a fantastic idea. You can celebrate on your front garden and shout to your neighbours and wish them all a Happy V E Day. Can you take some photographs to remember this special day? I hope you have lots of fun.

Hi Mrs Sherman,
we hope to have a picnic in the garden to celebrate VE Day.
I have got a new game called Rainbow Runners. It is about My Little Pony. I have been riding my scooter and I made a big sponge cake. I put blue icing on it. It was yummy.

Mrs Sherman wrote:

Hi Elizabeth,
I was excited to read your message.
Your new game sounds like lots of fun and I'm glad you've been keeping fit and getting outside on your scooter. Your cake sounds like its perfect for a VE Day picnic. Can you take a photograph of your VE Day? I hope you and your family have a lovely time on Friday. Keep in touch with all your news .

I'm glad you had a nice time on Friday celebrating V.E. day. I sat in my garden too -it was so sunny. Did you decorate your house with red, white and blue, bunting? I hope we can all get back to school soon and then we can share our memories of the day.

Hi Isaac,
It's great to hear all of your VE Day news. We enjoyed a yummy picnic in the sun too but I wish we'd had some music in our street. It sounds like you had lots of fun! Do you know some VE Day facts? Maybe you can remember some facts and then tell your friends when we get back to school.
I'm missing your lovely smile and hope to see you soon . Love Mrs Sherman

Our road did a front garden afternoon tea and we decorated the front of the house with bunting, union jack flags and some pictures we had coloured in. I helped make some cupcakes that we decorated with red, white and blue colours and we had them with sandwiches, crisps and fruit that we also laid out to look like a union jack flag. I also spoke to my granny and grandad and next door neighbour (who are all in their 80s) about their memories of VE Day and the War. One of the neighbours was playing traditional war time music and everyone seemed to be enjoying being outside in the sunshine. I took my bike for a ride around the block with a flag on the front so I could see all the houses decorated and waved to people sat in their gardens.
I even slept in a tent in the garden with mummy that night because we would have been going camping that weekend. We watched the Queen's Speech and then stayed up to see the supermoon before could snuggling up in our sleeping bags after reading a story by torchlight. It was a lovely day.

Mrs Andrew wrote:

Hi Robert,
You have made lots of memories, did you take photos too. I would love to see them if you have any. Garden camping sounds like lots of fun too. You are lucky!
We had a little party in my street too but it doesn't sound as exciting as yours!
Stay safe and hopefully see you soon.
