VE Day - explained for children.

Good morning year 4

 

Today is a very special day to many people.  It is a day that we celebrate the end of World War 2 in Europe and is a chance for us to remember and thank all the people who helped to protect our future by defending and protecting us.

 

THANK YOU!

 

I have put a few links and activity packs if you want to do these with your family to help you celebrate at home.
