VE Day 75th Anniversary and Citizenship
By Zoe Baker, Citizenship Teaching
On 8th May, were it not for fighting the outbreak of Covid - 19, many schools would be hanging out bunting and arranging tea parties with students and staff in 1940’s clothing or wearing red, white and blue. Assemblies would be held, and History classrooms would remind students of what VE Day was and why it is important to remember.
