Celebrating VE Day

This year, on Friday the 8th of May, the whole of the United Kingdom will be celebrating VE day (Victory in Europe Day).

But what is VE day?

VE day marks the official end of WW2 – it was the day which the allies announced that Germany had surrendered meaning they had won the war! This happened on Tuesday 8th May 1945 which was 75 years ago! So we are celebrating 75 years since Britain officially won the war!

Remembering the War and the heroes that fought for us is incredibly important as so many people sacrificed so much for all of us…

In year 6 we learn all about WW2 – which is something to look forward to learning about!!

    I can’t believe that it is VE Day! I am extremely happy about today and I hope all the people who fought in the war are proud of themselves. I hope everyone will remember those who fought in the war and those who lost their lives for us to win the war.
