Topic (History)

This year’s May bank holiday was moved from today to Friday (the 8th May) to allow everyone to be able to celebrate VE Day. These celebrations may now look a little different, however our tasks this week will be linked to this and hopefully support your celebrations at home.

Today we would like you to carry out some research into VE Day. The work we have completed this school year about WW2 and the activity from last week about searching the Internet should help you too!

You might find these questions useful to guide your research. For today, you only need to make notes: you will be using these tomorrow!

When was VE Day first celebrated?

What was it commemorating? Why was it an important day?

Who celebrated it? Where was it celebrated?

How did people celebrate?

How were people feeling?

What plans were in place to help people to celebrate in 2020? Why is this year significant?
