VE Day

Thursday 7th May 2020

Tomorrow it will be the 75 year anniversary of VE day. 8 May 1945 – VE (Victory in Europe) Day – was one that remained in the memory of all those who witnessed it. It meant an end to nearly six years of a war that had cost the lives of millions; had destroyed homes, families, and cities; and had brought huge suffering and privations to the populations of entire countries.

Millions of people rejoiced in the news that Germany had surrendered, relieved that the intense strain of total war was finally over. In towns and cities across the world, people marked the victory with street parties, dancing and singing.

How will your family celebrate VE day? Will you have a party? 

I couldn't imagine what it would have been like growing up and living in wartime. The people who lived, fought and survived during this time overcame so much! Because of this I want to know when was a time that you achieved something new? When was a time you had to be brave? When was a time you overcame something you found difficult? 

Have a good day, 

Missing you all

Mr Ralph.

    Hi Mr Ralph , Hoping all is well, I was brave when I was going whitewater rafting in the Alps in France as we were going really fast down the river I really nearly fell out and then we had to jump off a slippery wet thirteen foot rock in to the river it was very scary . I don’t think I have had to overcome anything but I probably will in the future. Stay safe , Eddie xxx 🤩

    Hi Eddie, that sounds amazing and a lot of fun. I did things like that while out in America and you do need to be brave. I'm sure in the future whenever you need to overcome something you will do an amazing job. Have a great weekend. Mr Ralph x
