A Rainham school has created a display to honour Sir Captain Tom Moore.
Each year group at Newtons Primary School contributed an idea to the display, which says "tomorrow will be a good day" at the top in honour of the captain's famous quote.
The nursery, Reception and Year 1 groups made the collage, while Years 2 and 3 added the medals and birthday balloons respectively.
Year 4 created the rainbows to symbolise the NHS charities Sir Captain Tom raised money for; Year 5 added RAF planes to mark the veteran's service, and Year 6 created the younger pictures seen in the display.
It was intended that the contributions made by the eldest and youngest children would represent opposite stages of Sir Captain Tom's life.
