We are a school community and we are a family. We learn together, we support each other, we give our time, our kindness, our love and our compassion to those around us in our school and wider community. We help each other to be ourselves and to be proud of it and to grow in to the unique individuals we are, and as a result, we grow into the respectful and accepting community we all value so much- we are there for each other on each step of our journey.

Captain Tom 100


To celebrate the achievements of Sir Captain Tom Moore and continue his legacy EYFS took part in the Captain Tom 100 challenge . We read the story from Little People Big Dreams - Captain Tom Moore . We found out about his fundraising efforts and watched him receive his knighthood from the Queen.

We thought of our own fun challenges to take part in on his birthday where he would have been 101. Some of our challenges had a maths theme.

Challenge 1
The children made 100 giant bubbles - and were encouraged to use mathematical vocabulary for size, position and space. We used a tally chart to record the amount of bubbles we made .
Challenge 2
The children took part in a PE challenge racing against the clock ⏰ to turn over 100 cones. The children were encouraged to use ordinal language as well as telling and recording the time to determine the winners
Challenge 3
Whole class dancing and counting to 100 with grandpa and grandma - Jack Heartman outdoors.
Challenge 4
We’re all friends - Hug a friend photo to create a picture collage of 100 friendship hugs

Year 2

We worked together to estimate what items we thought were 100mm and 100cm. We measured a variety of items both inside the classroom and outdoors. We recorded the lengths and discussed which items were closest to 100mm or 100cm. We know to start at 0cm when measuring!

We discussed the equivalency sign:

100mm = 10cm

100 cm = 1 m

and applied this knowledge to help estimate which objects were 100 mm and 100 cm.

Green for Growth: We also used a trundle wheel to measure and mark out 100 meters outside and participated in a 100 metre sprint!

Year 2 Captain Tom 100 Challenge

Year 4

In 4KH, the children completed the Year 4 White Rose Maths Challenge to use classroom objects to make a length of 100cm. The children then measured their creations to see which group was the closest!

Seedia, Lola and Ewan used 50 multi-link cubes as they approximated that each cube was 2cm long.

Izzy, Haron and Aisha's creation was exactly 100cm long! They used 3 exercise books as they estimated that they were the same length as a 30cm ruler and used a Base 10 ten to make the last 10 cm!

In 4SK, the children had a competition to use their estimation skills to find classroom objects they thought measured 100cm. James, Jada and Yusuf found that the book cupboard was exactly 100cm long!
