Friday 8th May is the 75th Anniversary Celebration of VE Day. Unfortunately many planned activities and events have had to be cancelled but you could still join your neighbours in a nationwide 'Stay at home' street party! Why not have a look at some of the resources below and decorate your house or windows with bunting or pictures in red, white and blue. At 11.00am you can observe 2 minutes silence on your doorstep. At 3.00pm Churchills speech will be shown on the BBC. Then in the afternoon head to your front garden for tea and cakes, wave to your neighbours but remember to follow the social distancing rules. At 9.00pm there is a proposed nationwide sing-a-long to 'We'll meet again with the Royal British Legion after the Queen's address. Enjoy the day but remember to always keep at a safe distance. Why not send in some photos of your decorated houses!
Liam's VE Day celebrations
Liam had a great bank holiday celebrating VE day. He and his sister made bunting, coloured it in as well as measuring how much we needed.
He made chocolate crispy buns and baked a cake and did his creative union Jack on it. He was very pleased. We served afternoon tea and it was all lovely.
We had a street party on our driveways and we fussed over our 91 year old next door neighbour, Mary. She was 15 the day the war ended. Liam has learnt a lot from her stories that you couldn’t find in a book or on the internet. She explained her feelings and the way people responded around her. She has a great memory.
Liam also performed a song on his guitar as well as singing. He didn't fancy the karaoke but he did build up the courage to do what he likes. We were all very proud of him
He has been practicing daily and is getting very good at it. He has learnt several new songs during the lockdown but only wanted to perform the one.
He had a fantastic day as we all did.
