Back in February, we started planning what we would like to do in order to celebrate VE Day in school. Of course, with everything that is going on in the world, we realised all our plans would not happen. However, we still felt it incredibly important to remember and honour all those individuals who sacrificed so much during the Second World War, so we decided to launch a competition.
This year would mark 75 years since the Germans accepted surrender in Berlin; the initial surrender was signed and accepted on the 7th May 1945 in France. At 3pm in the afternoon, on the 8th May, Winston Churchill addressed the nation and announced the surrender. All over the country men, women and children celebrated the end of war.
Miss Breakell and I were amazed by all of your incredible and creative entries - it made it very difficult to judge. Students made Spitfire models, their own bunting out of old pillowcases that were later dyed and even researched their own family history. So many also made the effort to research and thank Colonel Tom Moore. Well done to everyone who got involved, it was incredible.
From all the entries we received we were able to create a scrapbook video to share the amazing work our students put in, this included are winning entries from B.Fitton 7L, R.Pilling 8S and A.Price a Future Year7 student. To view the video in full visit https://youtu.be/dLG8HmhFro4.
