Wouldn't it would be wonderful to celebrate both the way in which we, as a school, have marked VE Day this week and to also recognise / commemorate Colonel Tom’s 100th birthday? Look at the mosaic that was produced for him:
We would love photos of you all saluting (either on your own, or as a family group) for a display at school. Please email your photos to firstname.lastname@example.org. When we get back to school, we will create a display with all these images on it.
ENJOY THE VE DAY ANNIVERSARY TOMORROW.

This model was given to my great-grandad at the end of World World 2. His name was Arthur Reginald Byer. He looked after an Italian prisoner of war called Novello Corsiuovi who made this model and gave it to my grandad because he was kind to him. This was made from materials lying around where the prisoners lived.
I learnt about this from my great Uncle John. He wants us to look after it and pass it on to future people in my family.
Arthur and Otis recently competed a 100 lap bike ride of Castle Road and raised over £1000 for the NHS. In the spirit of VE day, they were inspired by war veteran Captain Tom Moore. We made a video of it if you’d like to see: https://youtu.be/H9I9MCZUMFc
