Our VE Day 75 Schools Pack is in schools & online now!

16th March 2020

In partnership with The Royal British Legion Scotland, the Scottish Government and Education Scotland, Poppyscotland Learning has posted a special illustrated Victory in Europe Day 75th Anniversary Assembly and Resource Pack to every school in Scotland. We hope our wonderfully inspiring, highly informative and fun activities booklet will give schools lots of great ideas for how they can enjoy marking this important milestone.

A digital version of this booklet is available on our website VE Day 75 School Assembly & Resources Pack  and has been designed to be Smart Board friendly. In our ongoing commitment to provide Gaelic language resources, a Gaelic version of this booklet is available on our website.

Our VE Day 75 resources will help practitioners and learners to:

  • View our VE Day, VJ Day & Overview of WW2 Assembly PowerPoints
  • Host your own commemorative 75th Anniversary VE Day Street Party
  • Try their hand at stimulating learning activities from Codebreaking to recreating Churchill’s famous speech
  • Take our Quiz Challenges – you can find the answers by clicking on our 75 VE Day & WW2 Facts online
  • Watch our Veterans’ Voices short filmsPoppyscotland is extremely honoured to launch a new film series called Veterans’ Voices. These are interviews with veterans from WW2 sharing stories about their own deeply personal experiences.
  • There are more activities and expanded resources available online at: learning.poppyscotland.org.uk/veday75/

We hope schools will enjoy using and reusing our VE Day 75 resources for years to come.
