VE Day Resources

Celebrations for the 75th anniversary of VE Day may different from what was planned a few weeks ago but there are plenty of resources on line for VE Day celebrations at home.

Teachers may direct you to activities on Google Classroom but here are a selection of websites which you can explore online at home.
Whatevever you do we would love to see pictures of what you have been doing.
Tweet your photos (no children's names) and add @Deansfieldsch so that we can retweet.
If you are not on Twitter share with your teacher in Google Classroom.
