Literacy Activity

Tomorrow is a special bank holiday to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day. A long time ago there was a war being fought by most of the countries in the world. People all over Europe were tired of years of hardship and bombing, they wanted to return to a normal life again, so when the war was over, they had a day of celebration which was called VE Day.

Watch the slideshow to find out about VE Day.

My dad was 12 years old when the war ended. He sent me a collage he made of some photos to show you. The first photo is of the VE Day party in the street where he lived. The next photo is of his brother and sister and if you look carefully in the background you can see the street shelters. The next photo is of my dad aged 13 on the bomb site of the J Lyons factory. The photo on the bottom left is of my dad's sister and brother with their school. During the war, children living in London were evacuated to the countryside because of the bombing and the schools in London closed down. Once the war was over, schools began to re-open and the children went back. The photo shows all the children at the school. The last photo is of my dad when he was 8, his sister and 2 of the children he met when he was evacuated.

Activity:

This year, special celebrations were planned to celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day, but because of the corona virus, plans have had to change.  Look at the poster below with a grown up to help you read it.

  • Use the ideas in the poster (and your own ideas too, of course) to plan a VE day celebration with your family for tomorrow. Create your own poster to let me know what you will be doing. Send me photos of your VE Day party!

 

  • OR you could plan a celebration for when the corona virus is over. What will you do when you are allowed out again? Write a sentence to tell me what you will do.
