VE Day Competition

It's Party Time!!

As it is the 75th anniversary of VE Day this Friday, an important date in history, Miss Routh would like you to create your own party decorations that you would have at your own VE Day party.

VE Day means ‘Victory in Europe’. On the 8th May 1945, the German army surrendered against the allied forces and this ended World War Two in Europe.

To celebrate the war being over, people across the UK had street parties! (Maybe we can have a similar party when we are all back together again!)

Can you spot the bunting and party hats in these pictures?

What you need to do:

Can you create some party decorations that you would have at your VE Day party? Email your decorations to Miss Routh at and they will be entered into the competition!

You might want to use/include:

  • The colours red, white and blue as these are the colours of the union jack
  • Recycled materials to make your decoration/s e.g. scrap paper, cereal boxes, cardboard tubes
  • Bunting
  • Flags
  • Party hats
