Highfield Day Nursery pay tribute to Captain Sir Tom Moore
Children and colleagues from Highfield Day Nursery in Edgbaston have been celebrating the life and legacy of Sir Captain Tom Moore with a series of activities by way of tribute, including a dress up ‘Superhero Day’ at the setting.
At the Ofsted-rated ‘Outstanding’ Day Nursery on Highfield Road, the achievements of the beloved centurion were honoured as children took a 100 step ‘memory walk’ in the garden, complete with a clap in aid of the inspirational fundraiser, before celebrating their individual accomplishments with a special medal giving ceremony.
Highfield Day Nursery Deputy Manager, Laura Phipps explained;
“We were all deeply moved by Captain Tom’s story and fundraising efforts and wanted to pay tribute to him with the help of the children. Some of our pre-schoolers were able to clearly re-call the wonderful gesture he made for the NHS during the beginning of the pandemic which led to some wonderful discussions, and everyone has had a lovely time paying their respects through a range of activities.”
