History: VE Day

Tomorrow (Friday 8th May) is VE Day. VE stands for Victory in Europe. It is a very important day in the British Calendar. This year it is even more special because it is the 75th anniversary since the end of World War 2 in Europe. Even if we did not have to be in lockdown, we would have had a day off of school as it was made a Bank Holiday!

As we face some of the most challenging times since the end of the Second World War, now more than ever it is important to unite in recognition of service to the nation, just as communities did 75 years ago.

Research and Find out more information about VE Day.

  • Why was it so important?
  • How did the people feel? Why did they feel this way?

You can download an information pack from the Royal British Legion.

The people of Britain Celebrated the Victory in Europe by throwing huge street parties. Thousands even went to celebrate outside of Buckingham Palace!
