Hello Year 3!
How are you? Did you have a lovely weekend?
Sunday was VE Day. This stands for Victory in Europe – it was 75 years since the second world war came to an end, when Germany surrendered to the allied forces in Europe. You can find out more about VE Day here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/48201749
People had been planning VE Day celebrations since long before schools had to close and we had to start staying at home. Because everyone is staying in to stay safe and protect the NHS, people had to come up with other ways to celebrate! On Friday, lots of people had celebrations on their doorsteps – making sure they stayed far enough away from people who aren’t in their household, of course. You may have seen decorations such as bunting in some streets if you have been out for a walk recently. You may even have taken part in the challenge set by Mr Taylor to create a poster or decoration yourself. Can you have a conversation with your adults at home about what VE Day means and how we commemorate it? You can take a look at what children across the country did to makr the day here: https://www.bbc.co.uk/newsround/52558191
