VE Day Celebrations and end of topic event.
It was our pleasure to host a performance for The Veterans Charity showcasing all of our work from the topic A Child’s War. Year 5/6 were lucky enough to be joined by seventeen veterans from different corps within the forces. After the performance, the children were treated to stories from some of the veterans, which really made the learning come to life. The most special of these came from someone who was only 9 years old at the time the war broke out and he confirmed that his experiences of VE Day matched what the children had learnt.
During the performance, the veterans were treated to some dancing, poetry, photos, artwork and lots of information about what we have looked at this term. It was an absolute honour to welcome our guests and the children loved the experience. We look forward to continuing the links with this charity in the future and thank them for coming along.
A huge thank you to Miss Calder for all of her organisation.
