On Friday it is VE Day (Victory for Europe Day). We are celebrating this day because 75 years ago the Second World War came to an end. The war was a very sad time because different countries were fighting with each other. The men from this country went to war and fought. The women and children remained at home. This was a time of big change as previously many women had been house-wives and were not allowed to do certain jobs. When the men left to fight, women had to complete these jobs. The cities became a very dangerous place and the children were evacuated to the countryside to keep them safe.
Questions to think about...
What happened to your family during the Second World War? You could ask your grandparents. Did anyone fight in the war, were they evacuated or did they learn a new job?
