We are supporting Ards and North Down Borough Council as they encourage residents to join in with a host of virtual VE Day 75 celebrations from the comfort of their own homes on Friday 8 May.
It will be 75 years since the guns fell silent at the end of World War II in Europe and this special anniversary will provide the people of Ards and North Down with an opportunity to remember those who made tremendous sacrifices at home and abroad.
More details can be found on the Council's website:
Our Home Learning challenge this week is to create your own bunting and use it to decorate your house or garden. You can use the template below to print off and decorate or use the easy guide to create your own. Send us a photo of what you've done and let us know if you're planning your own VE Day celebrations - you can upload to our Facebook post or send to firstname.lastname@example.org. This is also a great opportunity to learn a bit more about VE Day and why it's an important commemoration. We have added some resources at the bottom of the page which might help support this at home.
