Friday 8th May is the 75th anniversary of Victory over Europe, when the nation will join together to commemorate the service and sacrifice of the WWII generation, then and now.

As we recognise the extraordinary contributions made by so many, we want to invite families to explore VE Day together. At 11am, there will be a two-minute national silence to remember the declaration of victory. Ordinarily, commemorations including parades and street parties would take place, however, this year we will all be commemorating from the comfort of our own homes.

We have put together resources for Key Stages 1 and 2 to help you do this, which include:

  • the knowledge organiser for the topic to promote discussion and provide visual reminders;
  • the key knowledge that we would want children to retain;
  • online resources to support learning;
  • activities that are manageable in the home

These resources can be found on the Home Learning page for each year group.

Please ensure that you comply with social distancing measures at all times.
