Next Friday is the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. In Brackley, we are asking everyone to celebrate at home with Stay@Home Garden Parties, decorating their homes, wearing red, white and blue and join in with a national two minute silence, toast and singing whilst keeping safe at home.

Much of the school work next week will be VE Day Project based. Here is a selection of resources for you to access to help you with school work, decorating, baking and even a bit of dancing! Enjoy making memories at home together. 

Do what you can, when you can. Keep your homes happy!

We’ll Meet Again Lyrics

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
‘Till the blue skies drive the dark clouds far away

So will you please say hello
To the folks that I know
Tell them I won’t be long
They’ll be happy to know
That as you saw me go
I was singing this song

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day

We’ll meet again
Don’t know where
Don’t know when
But I know we’ll meet again some sunny day
Keep smiling through
Just like you always do
‘Til the blue skies
Drive the dark…
