Good Morning Year 6! I hope you have all had a lovely weekend.
I was wondering if you each wanted to create and send a birthday card to 'Captain Tom:' a British war veteran, who fought in the army and served in India and Burma during the Second World War. It is his 100th birthday on Thursday! 100 years old - WOW! That is an achievement. He was born 30th April 1920.
You may have noticed him on the tv or online as the elderly gentleman who wanted to walk 100 laps around his garden to raise money for the NHS. His initial wish was to raise £1,000. He was shocked but delighted when he heard he had raised £5,000, but amazingly he has currently raised just under £28,000,000 - 28 million!!!
And, not only that, he has recorded a song from yesteryear, with many other artists, and it has become a number one hit! What an amazing gentleman raising funds for the NHS!
If you decide to send him a birthday card here is his address:

It's a great game for looking at the many, many ways we can make 1 whole, using a variety of fractions all mixed together. You need your left and right arrow buttons. You might want to turn the sound off too.
