Last week our Year 5 and 6 children re-enacted the celebrations around VE Day. The children really enjoyed dressing up in WW2 clothes. The day included designing and making a medal for a returning soldier, writing letters to parents from evacuee children to say that they are coming home, and learning a Lindy Hop. The children also got the opportunity to make and taste traditional WW2 foods.
The children loved the day, and it brought their topic of WW2 to life.
