Victory in Europe at EHPA! (posted on 17.02.2017)

By Mia Brown, age 10

On Thursday 9th February, all of Year 6 held an amazing V.E. (Victory in Europe) Day party to celebrate the last few weeks in our study of WW2.

During our fabulous party, we played, danced, ate and played even more! There were many food and drink choices: the delicious spam or jam sandwiches; nutritious carrot cookies; some refreshing lemonade; and dandelion and burdock.

In addition, we danced until we dropped! We did a show dance, a jive and a ladies’ excuse me. Finally, we played a game of beetle drive (a WW2 game).

The person who sat next to me for the meal, Charlie Thompson, said, “I enjoyed beetle drive because I got to spend quality time with my friends.”

One of my friends, Ben Nicolls, said, “The show dance was the worst – it went wrong.”

If you want to know more about our V.E. Day party, you can ask some of the Year 6 children who went.

One of our Year 6 boys – Charlie Thompson – has won a city-wide poetry competition.  Charlie won the primary section of the competition which was held to mark Anti-Bullying Week.  His prize (an iPad) will be presented to Charlie by the Mayor of Sunderland in March.

The organisers said there were hundreds of entries, so well done Charlie! His poem might even be included in a book to mark the occasion.
