VE Day activities for children

We’re offering special packs to our families, children and staff to help them celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day in lockdown.

The anniversary of Victory in Europe Day on 8th May was set to be a significant occasion, with the May bank holiday moved and largescale events planned to commemorate the landmark.

We’re working with the Royal British Legion, National Memorial Arboretum and Citizen to help people mark the anniversary from their home by reading about VE Day and taking part in activities.

There are packs for children and adults and they include puzzles, recipes, extracts from Churchill speeches, lyrics to war songs and much more.

Out of lockdown this would have been a very special anniversary and it’s important that this isn’t lost.

We hope the packs help individuals and families engage with and celebrate the 75th anniversary of VE Day in a really positive way. You can download the packs below. Please share your child's work on our social media channels so we can see the wonderful things they're doing.
