Pupils at Ingoldisthorpe Primary School donned head scarves and flat caps to mark the anniversary of VE Day with a street party.

Staff, family and children gathered at Ingoldisthorpe Church to remember the bravery and sacrifice of the Second World War. The school governors’ chairman, Peter Roberts, spoke to the children about his childhood memories of VE Day as a ten-year-old boy.

Headteacher, Mr Sean Wright, said: “It was a remarkable day of hands-on learning and respect. It’s vital that the younger generation understand their British history and the importance of VE Day. Without the brave men and women of WWII who fought for victory, the freedoms and democracy we enjoy today would have been a very different story.”
