Victory in Europe Day

Victory in Europe (VE) Day on 8th May 1945 saw Britain and its Allies formally accept Nazi Germany's unconditional surrender after almost six years of war. At 3:00pm, Prime Minister Winston Churchill announced on the radio that the war in Europe had come to an end, following Germany's surrender the day before. Spontaneous celebrations broke out across the country.


This year marks the 75th anniversary. While we cannot celebrate this anniversary with our extended families, friends or classmates, we can remember all of the brave men and women who fought. 


Year 6 Venus Class have been busily marking the 75th anniversary with their cups of tea. Aren't they wonderful!
