Red Kites class attended the Raise the Flag ceremony at the Civic Centre this year. The children proudly waved their flags when the mayor said how pleased he was to see us there! We listened to some songs and readings from older children and then we were invited into the council chamber to sing the song ‘Keep the Home Fires Burning’, which we have been learning especially for this performance. Afterwards, we chatted to some soldiers and even got to climb up into army trucks and test our fitness on their rowing machines. All the children were a credit to themselves and to our school.
