Well done to Grace, one of our Year 6 pupils, who has learnt how to play Somewhere over the rainbow. she played it on her drive on Thursday evening. Well done!
Some of the staff have sent in their lock down VE day celebration photos, there are more on the individual class blogs. Please feel free to send us some of your photos, if you have not already done so.
Hope you are all well and keeping safe. Thought I would share a few photos of how I celebrated VE day at home. I decorated my windows with flags and bunting. I then baked some fruit scones (they were delicious) and had a lovely tea with my husband. Later that evening we had a Zoom lockdown quiz with my family whom I’m missing very much. It was a very enjoyable day overall. Hope you all equally celebrated VE day in a safe and enjoyable way.
Missing you all very much.
Take care and stay safe.

To celebrate VE Day Mrs Beddow and Georgia made a good old fashioned bread pudding. I remember my nan making it and telling me that she used to make it with her mom during the war – using left over stale bread and eggs from the chickens in the garden plus other rationed ingredients – it was very yummy and brought back lovely memories.
We then made some home made bunting to decorate our back garden.
We also enjoyed a family BBQ and relaxed in the garden while listening to 1940s Wartime songs.
On the 8th May it is the 75th anniversary of VE day – the day that people celebrated the end of World War Two in Europe. When we planned our celebrations back at the beginning of the school year we could never have imagined that we would not be able to do them in the way that we intended. The last few weeks have probably taught us all more about WW2 and how life changed for people than any lesson could possibly have done. We can appreciate how happy people must have felt after enduring six years at war. We know that lots of you will be marking the day at home and maybe having mini tea parties. We would love to hear all about it! We also know that some amazing enrichment homework projects have been completed – these will be displayed proudly when we all return to school.
Here on the Celebration blog we are taking a look back at how we celebrated Remembrance in 2018. We hope that whatever you are doing on the May Bank Holiday VE Day anniversary that you enjoy it, and have a wonderful day with your families.
Stay safe, with lots of love from all of the staff at Rushall XX
