The 75th anniversary of VE Day has been marked by pupils from an Exmouth primary school despite the coronavirus crisis.

Youngsters from Brixington Academy have held their own parties at home to mark three quarters of a century since the end of World War Two.

Pupils were challenged to have a ‘stay at home VE Day street party’ while those whose parents are key workers marked the occasion at a picnic at the school.

Some enjoyed strawberry and cream scones while others decorated their houses with the Union Jack.

A spokesman for the school said: “As a school we wanted to mark this important date but due to most of our pupils being at home had to think creatively.

“The children of key workers who were in school also celebrated by making bunting and they enjoyed a picnic provided by our wonderful kitchen staff.”
