Sir Captain Tom Moore 100 Challenge February 21

We have all been inspired by the remarkable Sir Captain Tom Moore. On Friday 12th February we had a special virtual assembly to remember Sir Tom. We have decided to add a special trophy to our end of year awards. It will be the Sir Captain Tom Moore Award for someone who has shown determination, gone above and beyond, who helps others, is an inspiration or role model. Actually someone who displays all our school values. I am sure their are plenty of children in our school who would be worthy of such a trophy. 

Also as part of the assembly I set the children a challenge for half term. This was also inspired by Sir Captain Tom's 100 laps of his garden. The children had to do 100 of something or something for 100minutes. They had to send evidence in and below you can see their successes. each child will receive a special rainbow medal and certificate. The certificate will contain the picture by Lola.

Harry makes 100 chocolates....

Harry has been working hard in half term making and sending 100 chocolates to people. He melted the chocolate, filled the moulds with chocolate and nuts, sprinkles, mint flavour, cranberries, coconut and then pressed out of the mould and bagged up for people and sent them. We have had lots of thank you phone calls and messages from those who received them.

 He included a note to say why he had done them too. When Sir Tom was walking around his garden Harry donated £10 of his pocket money to the funds and was really keen to do this challenge.
