Last Friday, the country celebrated the 75th anniversary of the allied victory in Europe. As a school serving many military families, VE Day is an especially important date for us.
That’s why we are so proud of the amazing display made by the children of key workers in commemoration of this special day.
The work, of which you can see more pictures in the gallery below, was made by children at Larkhill with the help of staff Fiona Jenkins, Mel Bagley, and Ann Bennison.
Children each made their own collages, which were then combined to make the stunning display. In creating the artwork, the children demonstrated our school value of cooperation, first planning and then completing the fantastic display together.
In addition to the school display, we also put a postbox outside school for children in the community to post their work to display. The response has been really impressive! You can see some of the entries in the gallery at the bottom of this post.
As well as assisting children with their amazing VE Day display, our staff also helped them make some lovely rainbow displays to thank our brave key workers. We’d like to say a huge thank you to Caroline Porch, Natalie Broadhurst, and Sam Swindley, who produced the handprint rainbow, and Vicki Thrippleton, Jane Haggath, Jenny Boyden, and Paula Gentles, who produced the ribbon rainbow.
At Larkhill Primary School, we are very proud to support key workers and to do our part for the local community during this period. Making this display for VE Day was an excellent way to keep the children busy and get creative, while also teaching them about this important part of our country’s history.
Both displays look fantastic; well done to everyone involved!
