COLOURFUL creations by Morpeth school pupils took to the skies to mark the end of another school year.

Children from all year groups at St Robert’s First School in Oldgate made a kite and Years 2, 3 and 4 got to fly them in the school yard, while the younger pupils enjoyed a teddy bear’s picnic.

Headteacher Vivien Cunningham said: “The kite activity was a special treat at the end of the school year to recognise the success and achievements of our pupils.

“Every child took part and they could take the kites home to fly them during the summer holidays.”

This activity allowed year 4 to celebrate their happy time at the school, as they are moving on to middle school in September.

Ciara said she will miss everyone at St Robert’s and she has learned a great deal since she started. Her favourite subjects are literacy, particularly story-writing, and creative movement.

She added: “I was also in the school choir and we enjoyed singing in lots of places like the Millennium Green and old people’s homes. We took part in festivals and won some trophies.”

Daniel, whose favourite subjects are PE and art, said: “It was great being at St Robert’s and we could also do lots of fun things after school.

“It was quite tricky to make the kite, but I really enjoyed it and it was a lot of fun flying it in the school yard.”
