Design a VE Day Medal


Medals were given to the heroes who fought in the Second World War. Medals were a symbol of great pride and they recognised the bravery of all those who risked their lives to keep everyone safe. 


Here is an example of a medal from the First World War. 

Your task is to create a medal for the British soldiers who served in the Second World War! 


Draw around an empty cup to create your circle.

You must include: 


- The years of the war (1939 - 40)

- A symbol to signify the war





Write a sentence underneath to explain your choices. For example, why have you chosen the colour you have for the ribbon? How does your symbol represent the war?
