Welcome to Year Three Moore Class
Our adults are Mrs Taylor, Mrs Haslam, Miss Patel and Mrs Lunn and you can contact us on Class Dojo or speak to us before or after school.
Our class is named after Captain Sir Tom Moore who was an army veteran from Bedfordshire. He raised money for NHS Charities Together during the COVID-19 pandemic by walking 100 laps of his garden. Captain Sir Tom united the nation and gave us hope when it was needed most.
We read the story of Captain Sir Tom Moore - have a look at the link below.
