How St Peter's pupils have been marking VE Day

Pupils at St Peter's CE Primary School in Ashton have been busy this week gearing up for VE Day and celebrating the significant anniversary. 

Youngsters have been making beautiful artwork and decorating the Oxford Street school's grounds.  

They have also written prayers for veterans and even made their own outdoor prayer spaces.

Deputy head teacher Chris Colvin said: "Our pupils regularly visit Moss Cottage Nursing Home and also Broughton House Veterans Nursing Village  in Salford and so they have sent VE cards and messages of hope to the residents.

"They were really chuffed to receive a response and picture from 93-year-old former Royal Engineer and Broughton House Resident Jack (pictured below)." 

On Thursday, pupils attended a tea party dressed in red, white and blue - the colours of the Union Jack flag - and worked with music teacher Mr Derbyshire to perform their own version of Vera Lynn's We'll Meet Again. 

Here are some pictures showing how St Peter's pupils have been marking VE Day...
