A huge thank you to everybody that got involved with our VE Day celebrations from the comfort of their own homes.
Our Piece For Peace project proved to be a huge success and captured the imagination of Solihull. We received a huge number of fantastic submissions which were put together to form a large memorial.

Children at Balsall Common Primary School have participated in the Piece for Peace project at home. We have promoted this project via our online learning platform. Children of all ages have started to produce fantastic pieces of work for this event. They have attempted to create a five-inch square memorial that is themed around VE Day. The children have knitted, embroidered, crocheted, patch worked, or painted onto fabric which will then be sewn together to form a large memorial to commemorate VE Day as a symbol of peace.
“As a whole school, we set this project as it is important we teach the children not to forget about key events that happened in history. The children learn about the victory in Europe that marks the day towards the end of World War Two when fighting against Nazi Germany came to an end in Europe. This project links extremely well to our virtual curriculum and allows the children to realise colour, background and religion is irrelevant. Together we stay strong!”
