VE Day Resources

Please see below a selection of resources to help you mark the 75th anniversary of VE day with the Sparrows children. We know that this is a tricky subject for a 4 or 5 year old to comprehend and we completely understand if you decide that you would rather not tackle it with your child.


If the children were in school as normal, we would probably try to explain VE day along the lines of:

  • A long time ago there was a big war that happened involving a lot of different countries.
  • The war ended 75 years ago on Friday and we are going to mark this day to remember the people who had to fight in the war and to say thank you to them.
  • It is important that we remember what has happened in the past and we are very glad that we do not have any wars in our country at the moment.
