Learning about Captain Sir Tom Moore

UPDATE! Look at our display in the picture and video at the bottom of this post.
Over the last few days we have been learning about an amazing person, Captain Sir Tom Moore. Mrs Ganner showed us a photograph of him and we could tell by looking at him that he was very old. We discovered that on his last birthday he was 100 years old. We tallied 100 candles on the board in groups of 5 to get an idea of how much 100 is. “Wowwww, no way.” said one of the children as he looked at the picture. We were amazed to find out that Captain Sir Tom had walked around his garden 100 times to show how thankful he was to our doctors and nurses.
In our class, lots of people in our families have been in hospital. We shared our experiences with each other and thought about how we could challenge ourselves and show that we cared for people in the NHS. We think doctors and nurses are so special.
We decided we would draw and paint pictures and then write about what has happened to us and our families. Some of the children created Lego models of hospitals and played with the characters, reenacting how the doctors and nurses looked after their families. We also thought we would set our own 100 challenge by running around the bike track 100 times! So far we have completed 40 laps, 20 from the children our class and 20 children from Miss Riley’s class. Watch this space to see the display we are going to make with our work and how we are counting our laps with tally marks.
It is important to us to show we care.
We are really proud of the painting and writing we have made.
