Half Term Activity Four

MacArthur signing Japanese surrender aboard USS Missouri, 2 Sep 1945

A VJ Day Commemoration

So, week four sees VJ day fall in the midst of our scheduled activities and I though it would be fun to do a little VJ day quiz as our activity this week. There are a couple of questions for you to answer and explore and you can even quiz the adults after (once you’ve worked out the answers!) 

So here they are and we hope you enjoy, as well as learn a bit more about some key events of World War two 😊

  1. What date is VJ day commemorated on in the UK?
  2. What does VJ day commemorate?
  3. What does VJ stand for?
  4. What was the name of the US ship where the surrender agreement was signed?
  5. Where in the world was the treaty signed and on what date?
  6. What were the reasons behind VJ day? What events lead to the surrender?
  7. Who was Emperor of Japan at the time?

Don’t forget you can…
