Trinity Academy Richmond pupils take on 100 Challenge

Pupils at Trinity Academy Richmond have paid their respects to Sir Tom Moore by taking on the 100 Challenge.

Year 4/5 teacher, Louise Whitaker, introduced the challenge, which sees children and staff encouraged to take part in a series of challenges based around the number 100.

Examples include running ten minutes for ten days, skipping for 100 minutes, reading 100 pages or drawing 100 doodles.

Mrs Whitaker said: “I was keen for the children to be given the opportunity to show courage like Captain Sir Tom, in taking on a challenge, which is the termly current Christian value we are focusing on, and for the children to have the chance to talk about how inspirational he has been.”

Executive headteacher Kate Williamson added: “I am delighted that the children would like to commemorate Captain Sir Tom, who set such a wonderful example to us all, putting others before himself.

“The majority of children are remote learning from home at the moment and the school is particularly keen to support their positive mental health.

“These challenges give everyone an opportunity to get involved in a creative way, whilst improving their fitness levels.

“We think Captain Sir Tom would approve.”
