VE Day:

Tomorrow is VE day. Discuss as a family: What is VE day? Why do we celebrate it? How do different people celebrate it? Why is it important? What happened? Go through VE day powerpoint which talks in a simple way about what happened. 

Could you decorate your front room window? Could you make some bunting, flags or cakes? Post on the Padlet of how you celebrated VE day.
