VE Day 75th Year Celebrations - Friday 8th May 2020


For an extra writing challenge this week, we would like you to transport yourself back to 1945 when it was announced that the war in Europe was over. After six years, people could finally come out onto the streets without fear to celebrate. Imagine how they felt on that day!


We would like you to write a newspaper headline and article to describe the events of the first VE Day. Watch this BBC Video to find out how people reacted and what they did to celebrate. Remember that there was also sadness on that day because many people had lost loved ones during the war. We're looking forward to seeing your creations!
