Victory in Europe day: Friday 8th May

Tomorrow marks the 75th anniversary of Victory in Europe towards the end of World War II. 

 

Classes information pages will feature home learning activities to understand and celebrate the day. 

 

We would also encourage everyone to commemorate the the day, as we would be doing in school with a two minute silence at 11 O'clock. 

 

In the apt words of the British Legion:

 

'At 11am, we're encouraging people across all generations and communities to take part in a national moment of Remembrance and pause for a Two Minute Silence to honour the service and sacrifice of the Second World War generation and reflect on the devastating impact Covid-19 has had on so many lives across the world.

 

There is no right or wrong way to take part in the Silence, some may wish to stand at their windows, step outside their homes while remaining distanced from others, watch the broadcast on television, or simply sit in a quiet moment of reflection.'

 

Best wishes and keep safe,

 

The staff of Honiton Primary School
