BBC - Great British Bunting
With so many events cancelled or restricted for the commemoration of the 75th anniversary of VE Day on 8th May, BBC Radiowanted to come up with a way for people across the UK to mark the occasion and express their pride in our country and to remember and honour the men and women of WW2.
They have sent some guidance on making some bunting that you can display in your window, so we wanted to pass this on.
If you do make some bunting then we would love to see some photos of it.

PE Challenge in Partnership with the Total 14 Football Academy!
Craig from Total 14 has today set an online challenge to his Academy players which includes White Rock children as he comes in to provide us with our football coaching.
There are 20 football teams that Craig has described only by using emojis. He has not given us the answers yet - so between us do you reckon that we can crack the 20 and send them to Craig before anybody else can?
To help you out, I reckon 14 is New York Red Bulls...
Chat to family, FaceTime your friends and see how many you can get.
Email me your ideas email@example.com.
Feel free to design any others and send them to me and I'll see if I can guess them!
Good Luck from Mr Leaman!
