Year 5 were inspired by The Kites are Flying by Michael Morpurgo and created their own peace kites as a way of promoting peace across religions and societies. At a time where there are many conflicts around the world, it was important for our pupils to understand how powerful changing the mindset of people to believe and honour peace is.
The pupils of Year 5 were also inspired by the words of Father Philip at St Antony's church. he said "to promote peace we need to first have peace within ourselves." This was a message the pupils understood.
The kites were designed by amalgamating to make 5 per class.
The children loved flying them and it was amazing to see peace flying so high!
