Friday 8 May 2015 is the anniversary of VE Day (Victory in Europe Day), marking 70 years since the end of the Second World War in Europe. Three days of events in London and across the UK will mark this historic anniversary. The celebrations will include: beacon-lighting events, parades, street parties and on Sunday a fly-past over Central London.
At school children learnt about this momentous occasion and what it means to us as a nation. We observed 2 minutes silence to mark the moment Winston Churchill broadcast his historic speech formally announcing the end of the war.
