50th Anniversary

Betty Tadman

To commemorate the 50th anniversary of the end of the Second World War, the Department for Education is sending a teachers' resource pack to every school (maintained and independent) in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Packs for Scottish schools are available on request.

Each pack contains a message from the Queen and a teachers' booklet giving an account of the events of the war the past and present significance of VE and VJ days and the expectations which peace raised at home. There are also practical ideas for classroom activities. Other resources include photographic reproductions, leaflets, posters, a newsletter and a video featuring a specially made programme about the end of the war with archive footage and newsreel extracts.
