Today we are going to find out a bit more about Captain Tom.


Ask a grown-up to help you to watch this clip from the news.  It is from Youtube and I have watched it to check that it is suitable but you must watch it with a grown-up.  Then talk about what you have found out.  What do you think about what Captain Tom has done?


Now, list as many adjectives as you can to describe Captain Tom.  You can describe what he looks like and what sort of person you think he is on the inside.


When you have done this write sentences to describe him using adjectives and conjunctions (and, but, because, so).


Here is an example:


I think that Captain Tom is a very kind man because he has raised nearly 33 million pounds for the NHS.

He is also very brave as he fought in the Second World War.
