The Year 6 children, staff, parents/guardians and other family relatives enjoyed their very own VE Day Party today. Families baked cakes and biscuits which they shared and enjoyed with plenty of tea and coffee. Music played throughout the celebration but it didn’t drown out the sound of conversation and laughter created by all generations of families. We were so fortunate to have been graced with the presence of a WW2 Hero who, at the age 95, spoke to the children and guests sharing his wartime anecdotes and victory medals. The children’s work was also on display for people to read and savour. A whole-group sing-along to Vera Lynn’s “We’ll Meet Again” concluded the morning and this event marks a fitting end to the children’s topic of WW2.
