VE Day

7th May 2020

75 years ago, on May 8th 1945, Nazi Germany surrendered to the Allies, ending the Second World War. This day is known as VE (Victory in Europe) Day. With over 60 million people killed and many more injured, World War Two is the deadliest conflict the world has ever seen. On Friday 8th May 2020, we remember the people who fought, and supported the fight against the Nazis, by observing a 2 minute silence at 11am.
75 years ago, people filled the streets to celebrate the end of the war and thank those who sacrificed so much for our freedom.

Twinkl have lots of fun learning activities as well as craft ideas to join in the fun, including making your own bunting and spitfire planes.
