Curiously, the 'May Day' Bank holiday has changed this year (you may have noticed on the calendar)! It is normally the first Monday of the month however, in 2020 it has moved to Friday 8th May. This is because Friday is a special day in British (and World) history, we call it VE day which means Victory in Europe day. 75 years ago, the 8th May 1945 marked the end of WWII. Below are some links and information packs for you to learn about why it's such a special day. You may even have relatives who were alive at this time or can remember stories from their parents/grandparents who can remember this time. Passing down memories is a really good way of keeping history alive! 

Lots of charities such as the British Legion (the Poppy Appeal) had planned to celebrate however due to COVID-19 they have had to find alternative ways of remembering VE day:

These are all happening on Friday so you can join in if you would like to!

Here's a thought... 


In 1666, a great fire spread across London and Samuel Pepys became famous because he published a diary each day so that the event would be remembered in years to come. And, 354 years later, we still learn about it in our history lessons at school! 


This Covid-19 pandemic is likely to be remembered for a long time, your children may even learn about it when they are at school! Why not write your own diary each day - you never know, it might make you famous!
