Colourful kites will be soaring in the skies above Isaac Newton Primary School this week, all made by the fair hands of pupils.

Children in all classes were invited to make kites, some opting for colourful creations and others technical wonders. They went on to be judged in various categories, including best looking, highest flying and longest flying.

Pupils of Isaac Newton Primary School and their fabulous kites.

However, the heavy rain on Friday forced the postponement of flying until this week.

Headteacher Stephen Tapley said the youngsters enjoyed the challenge of building kites, from thinking about designs and colours to making them using various materials.
