Today is VE day!
Since 1945 the end of World War Two in Europe has been marked by Victory in Europe Day, better known as VE Day. 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, following Germany’s surrender the day before. This year, the 8th May 2020 will mark 75 years since the first VE Day!
Normally we would be celebrating with plans to stage celebratory events and street parties in many places. This year marks the 75th Anniversary – a time for us to look back and think about an important time in our history.
Instead, you can have a picnic or tea party at home to celebrate. It could have a theme:
I have included a bunting template, so that you can either design your own or you could make Union Jack bunting.
I hope you all have a lovely day with your families.
