• Welcome to our blog

    Our shared values in Y5: To care for myself and others by making sure we are all safe and happy. To be honest in all we do/say. We always work hard and try our best. We listen carefully and thoroughly. We make sure we are always giving our best, so everyone else can be the best that they can be. We look after our property.
    We like to be 'leaders' and not 'followers' We always choose the 'good' light inside of us. We make the right choices at the right time.

    Anyone can train hard for a short period. Winners give their best every hour of every day for months on end.

    In 5V we like to stop and think - before we do or speak.

    'Give children a thought and they’ll learn for a day. Teach them to think and they’ll learn for a lifetime.’David Hyerle
    If you can imagine it, you can achieve it; if you can dream it, you can become it.- William Arthur Ward
    You cannot write it, if you cannot say it; you cannot say it, if you haven't heard it. - Pie Corbett

    We love to share our way of thinking, it does help us in our learning!

WW2 Today

Summary of dates about WW2 end:
* May 5th 1945: The German army surrenders partially in the Netherlands
* May 7th 1945: The German army surrenders totally at Eisenhower’s headquarters in the German city of Reims
* May 8th 1945: The German army surrenders again to the Soviets in their headquarters at Berlin-Karlshorst

WW2 End – VE Days -The treaty was formally signed on May 8th 1945 and repeated again on the 9th at the Soviet headquarters in Berlin-Karlshorst. Due to delays the signing in Berlin took place very shortly after midnight. This is generally considered the end of WW2, though hostilities continued in the Pacific theatre until September 2nd 1945 when the Japanese surrendered in Tokyo Bay aboard the US ship Missouri.

Thus May 8th 1945 is known as VE Day (Victory in Europe Day), marking the WW2 end in Europe. Likewise in the Soviet Union and its satellite states, VE Day is celebrated on the 9th. It is noteworthy that in Holland, another day (May 5th) is celebrated as Liberation Day. The beginning of the WW2 end came with the capitulation of the German army on May 5th. The end of hostilities in Japan is known as VJ Day (Victory in Japan Day). The entire war began in 1939 and ended in 1945, lasting more than 5 ½ years, or 68 months.
