VE Day (Victory in Europe Day)

75 years ago, lots of countries and places around the world were fighting with each other. This meant that lots of people were hurt, had to live somewhere else or very sadly died.

It was a very difficult time and lots of people were scared and upset.

0n May 8th 1945 the fighting stopped in Europe and people could come home and be together again. Everyone was so happy that they had big parties and there was lots of singing and dancing.

It was such a sad time, that when everything went back to normal, everyone decided that they would remember the 8th May. On this day we think about the things that we are so happy to have in our lives and we are thankful that we had people to help us live peacefully.

Watch and Listen:

https://www.bbc.co.uk/cbbc/watch/horrible-histories-songs-ve-day-song

Activity:

Draw a picture of something/someone you are thankful for.

Write a sentence about your picture.  For example: I am thankful that I can stay at home with my family.
