VE Day Celebrations

Year 6 had a fantastic day celebrating the end of World War II.  The children had a go at the jitterbug dance, sampled spam sandwiches and tried their best to complete pounds, shillings and pence 1945 mathematics sums.

Everybody made a big effort with their costumes.  

 

Well done year 6!

Tuesday 8 May 1945 was Victory in Europe (VE) Day, and it marked the formal conclusion of Hitler's war. With it came the end of six years of misery, suffering, courage and endurance across the world.

 

Upon the defeat of Germany (Italy having already surrendered), celebrations erupted throughout the world.  From Moscow to London to New York, people cheered. In the UKmore than one million people celebrated in the streets to mark the end of the European part of the war. In London, crowds massed in Trafalgar Square and up The Mall toBuckingham Palace, where King George VIIand Queen Elizabeth, accompanied by Winston Churchill, appeared on the balcony of the Palace before the cheering crowds. Princess Elizabeth(the future Queen Elizabeth II) and her sister Princess Margaret were allowed to wander incognito among the crowds and take part in the celebrations.
