VE Day

It was wonderful to welcome so many people in school last Friday when we celebrated and remembered the end of the Second World War in Europe on VE Day.

Thank you to our kitchen staff for their hard work in putting on a “street party” in our school hall for our children, and to our Parish Council for a donation of £50 which helped us to offer the party food free of charge to all of our children.

In the afternoon we served cream teas, including scones made by children in Year Six, to our visitors while our brass band played in the background.

It was great that our children got the chance to mingle and chat with our guests, especially with those who had memories of the War, because it’s really important for young people to hear about the experiences that people have had in the past.

Our choir performed some war time songs and “Green Fields of France” and at 3.00pm Ruby played an incredibly moving version of The Last Post before we observed a to minutes silence.

It really was a wonderful afternoon.
