Year 6 pupils at Chorleywood Primary School celebrated VE Day by having a World War II day. 

Pupils have been learning about World War II and life in Britain at this time and on May 7 had a World War II day to consolidate their learning.

Speaking to ChorleywoodNews, Mrs Daver said: “We dressed up as soldiers, evacuees and land girls and celebrated by making cakes and decorating biscuits whilst listening to music from the 1940’s.     

“We also listened to Winston Churchill’s victory speech and decorated Union Jack bunting.  We had lots of fun.”

One of the students commented: “We had a World War II day to learn and feel what it was like in the war. We learned lots of things about Holocaust and just before this day we learned about rationing. 

“This is not something we do every year, but this was set up by our lovely teacher, Mrs Daver. It’s very important to remember this day because of the people who fought for all of us in World War II and risked their lives for us. We did this to learn all about and get the feel in World War II .”

Another pupil added: “On the day we learnt about the Holocaust and how Hitler wanted all Jews dead. 

“We had a brilliant day of celebrating Victory in Europe day.”
