This Friday, Friday 30th April, marks the beginning of the Captain Tom 100 Challenge which will continue until Bank Holiday Monday 3rd May.
The family of Sir Captain Tom Moore is inviting the world to take inspiration from his famous 100 laps around his garden to celebrate Tom’s life, his generosity of spirit and the hope and joy he brought to millions.
YOU can join this celebration and take part in the Captain Tom 100 by setting yourself your own challenge based around the number 100!
Let the number 100 be your inspiration and do something amazing, whether it’s..
100 Star Jumps
100 laps of your garden
100 minutes of gaming
Baking 100 cupcakes
Singing for 100 minutes.
We would love to see lots of you taking part and taking lots of photographs of your challenges. Please send any photographs or videos to [email protected] so we can celebrate your contributions on the blog.

Dear Parents and Carers
Next week is maths week at Green Top (4th – 7th May). We will be celebrating maths and to do this we will be doing the following:
- Each day you will be informed of a challenge you can complete at home and bring into school or email to [email protected]
- Each day there will be a FUN maths challenge on the blog for you to complete as a family at home
- Friday is NSPCC Maths day so we will be having a ‘maths’ dress up day (£1 donation)
Please see the school blog for links to the NSPCC maths day website, ideas for dress up and daily posts next week.
Tuesday’s challenge is: Maths is everywhere! Take a photograph of something maths related around our local community. This could be a percentage in a shop sale, a date on a building, a bus timetable or numbers on a traffic sign. Who will be the most creative? Send your photographs to [email protected]. Good Luck!
Last year was a huge success and enjoyed by all – we can’t wait to see what next week brings.

Dress up ideas:
This week year 3 had a walk to the train station where we talked about what it might be like for children being evacuated in the war. It was great to be out of school and we were even lucky enough to see a train.
Today the children had to put themselves in a shoes of a 1940s evacuee child. Leaving home to go to the country with only the help of their teacher to find them and deliver them to a new home.
Here they are looking all heartbroken and worried about the thought of it happening to lots of children all those years ago.
Luckily for them, we all arrived back at school ready for home time where heir parents and carers were there to pick them up.
Join in with our March reading challenge by helping us to earn 250,000 reading minutes!

Please find attached the google form for week 2 of our John o Groats to Lands End challenge. I will update the map on Monday evening so it gives everyone time to send their steps in. Good luck and keep those steps up!
Crew Cooper also had a go at the cup tower challenge yesterday. It was a bit of a challenge working together but we had a great debrief so let’s hope we have learnt from today’s challenge and can apply that to the rest of or work this week.
Crew Cooper showed great teamwork and determination to build their balloon towers today.
This morning the children had to work in teams to create balloon towers. They had to stand up without support, only use balloons and tape and to win they needed be all of that and the tallest.
Here they are getting stuck in.
