VE Day Television Schedule:
11am – BBC One will mark a two minute silence, a moment of remembrance in which we can all pay tribute to those who made the ultimate sacrifice
2.45pm – BBC One - The Announcement of Victory – A chance to Winston Churchill’s famous speech when he addressed the British people from Downing Street and announced that the war was over in Europe.
7pm – Channel 5 – The Lost Films – Imagine the jubilation in the streets when peace was finally declared in Europe. This collection of rarely-seen clips from amateur film makers captures the mood in Britain on that historic day. Moments of fun and elation include fancy dress parades, sports matches, bands playing, piggy back races and kisses in Trafalgar Square.
8pm – BBC One – The People’s Celebration – This is the big entertainment event of the night, put on by the BBC and The Royal British Legion to show thanks to our veterans. Stars will celebrate the happy events of 1945 with popular songs from the era culminating in a rousing rendition of “We’ll Meet Again” at 9pm which the whole country is encouraged to sing along to. (This is what we have been practising for!)
VE Day - At 9pm the BBC are hosting a Dame Vera Lynn Sing-a-long.
I wonder if you could first practise the words from one of her very famous songs titled "We'll Meet Again".
Please find the link below:
The first lines are:
"We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when,
But I know we'll meet again some sunny day"
Surprise your teacher and send them a recording of your performance!
Good afternoon! This week we are looking forward to Friday's VE Day celebrations!
Throughout this week, your teachers will be provided daily tasks that are centered around VE Day (Victory in Europe). We really hope we can make it an event to remember and show how fantastic our school community really is, and how we can come together in such unusual times!
Please find below some information about our community's socially distanced VE Day event!
