Celebrating VE Day 

Here are some activities you can enjoy while celebrating VE day on Friday 8th May.  Attached is a song from Mrs Kee, called 'Seventy Five Years' about VE day. We invite the children to play, sing, accompany and create some pictures to relate to this song and send them in for us to see. There is also an art challenge, some reading and links to find out more about VE day.
