Thursday 7th May


Good morning!


As it is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day tomorrow, I thought we would have a celebratory VE Day visit. The visit is to the Poppy Scotland web-site (following the tip-off from Miss Algeo, who is becoming an expert at spotting Virtual Educational Visits)! The VE Day 75 section of the web-site is fantastic, there are so many activities and resources that there should be something for everyone. I particularly liked the Powerpoint, Veteran's Voices, Singalong Sheets, History of VE Day and Party Ideas and VE Day in London. The Veteran's Voices section has interviews with three veterans to capture their experiences, with the message Watch Listen Learn Discuss Remember. Most of the Street Party ideas can be used as a Household Party instead of a Street Party; there are singalong sheets and links to learn the Jitterbug dance! The VE Day in London section shows Churchill's and the King's speeches and footage of the crowds celebrating. 

All of the links, and more, are in the Miscellaneous section.

Happy exploring!


As usual, if you have any comments, or suggestions for virtual visits, you can contact me using the Contact Form on the Scotland Class page. Thank you to those who have done this already.
