VE Day Postcard from the Past

Go through the powerpoint and watch the video links. Discuss any questions with your parents/ guardians then write a ‘Postcard from the Past’.

Imagine you were at the first VE day and heard the news that the war had ended.

What might you tell your family about what you heard? What you did? What you ate?

Draw a picture on the reverse showing what happened. 

Read all about it!

Read the VE reading comprehension and answer the questions at the end of the reading task. Choose from either the Achieve, Challenge or Aspire reading levels. 

The answers are found at the end of the reading task.
