VE Day and Remembrance


On 11th November we celebrated VE Day, marking the end of WW2 in Europe and signalling the end of our theme too. Everyone looked fantastic in their outfits, really embracing 1940's style and we had an amazing day celebrating the 77th anniversary of Victory in Europe. We made bunting, learned about the significance of VE Day and played some 1940's games, including marbles, jacks and flap the fish (which got very competitive!)

The children have worked incredibly hard during our World War Two theme and have been respectful and mature throughout. We were so proud of the way they hosted our whole school remembrance assembly, sharing their knowledge about conflicts around the world, the significance of the poppy and why it is important we remember those who have sacrificed themselves in wars. They also gave performances of their version of the White Cliffs of Dover, a military-style March using body percussion and a poignant poem written by a WW2 spitfire pilot. It was then lovely to see so many parents stay behind afterwards to watch us perform the upbeat number, Hey Mr Miller - a tribute to Glenn Miller - and our high energy Lindy Hop dance. Below are the videos from the children’s dances, in case you were unable to make it to the assembly along with some of the photos we took.
