On Friday (8th May 2020), it will be exactly 75 years since VE Day. 

VE Day - or 'Victory in Europe Day' - marks the day towards the end of World War Two (WW2) when fighting against Germany in Europe came to an end.

On 8 May 1945, Prime Minister Winston Churchill made an announcement on the radio at 3pm that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before.

This week, your activities are all about celebrating and remembering VE Day and those people who lived through the Second World War. Below you will find a lesson plan and the taught lesson that goes with it! I have also included some links to the Rutland County Museum, which we going to go to as our class visit! There is some great activities for you to have a look through.
