Year 7 Kakudako Kite Designs:
Year 7 students have be learning about Kites and the traditional Japanese paper kite, the Kakudako Kite, in their Design class this Spring Term.

The kites were richly decorated by the pupils with motifs that they had selected to express something about themselves – be that a horse, a pair of ballet shoes, a favourite cartoon character or hobby.

The patterns were printed onto the kites using simple relief print, with blocks that the pupils had designed and cut for themselves.

The kites were then flown on a very blustery but sunny afternoon.
