Happy Bank Holiday!
Usually, this would be the May Day Bank Holiday however, today is the 75th Anniversary of VE day (Victory in Europe) and was meant to be a big national celebration as it is when World War 2 ended in Europe. There is no work that you have to do for this but below is a video to explain more about the end of the war and various activities you could do to celebrate the day in your own homes.
Listen – music of the 1940s: https://www.bbc.co.uk/teach/school-radio/history-ks2-world-war-2-clips-ww2-songs-index/zbg9gwx
