Captain Sir Tom Moore

As a school we thought it was very important to look at the lessons that Captain Sir Tom Moore was giving out during lockdown. He set out to walk 100 lengths of his garden before his 100th birthday, to raise £1000 for the NHS charities together during the Covid-19 pandemic. He raised over £32million! His messages about never giving up and finding the light at the end of the tunnel became his mottos. His birthday was marked in a number of ways, including flypasts by the Royal Air Force and the British Army. Captain Tom was knighted by the Queen for his efforts.

Each class has looked at what Captain Tom has achieved and done during the pandemic. We have read the book 100 steps about his life and then each class has done a display in the hall. 

Have a look at each classes display below...
