From everybody at West Leigh
Friday 8th May is the 75th anniversary of VE Day. VE Day is also known as Victory in Europe Day and marks the day towards the end of World War Two. To help remember the soldiers who fought and celebrate this milestone, we have put together a number of different activities.
These are just a few ideas and some of them require a few resources. However, there are lots of other activities out there too and I'm sure your children will be able to come up with creative ideas.
If you can, please send in some photos of how you have chosen to celebrate VE Day. We would love to see what you've been doing.
What is VE Day?
If you want to learn more about VE Day, you could have a look at the PowerPoint below. If you enjoy researching, read the VE Day information sheet and then have a look at the challenge 'What is VE Day' to show off your learning!
If you enjoy drawing, designing and making things, have a look at the VE Day medal activity. How creative can you be?
If you enjoy some quiet time colouring, have a go at the VE Day colouring sheet.
If you have the resources available and your parents are happy for you to, why not celebrate by creating some bunting to hang up? You could print out the example and colour the Union Flag or be even more creative and design and make your own bunting.
Being a Code-Breaker
Can you translate different messages written in Morse code? You could even write your own messages for someone in your family to solve!
Being a Baker
If you have the ingredients and your parents say it's OK, why not have a go at baking some cupcakes to celebrate VE Day? You could even have a go at decorating them. Yummy!
