Summer's here, and teachers are flying off for their holidays. But before you go, come fly with us at TES Primary through our last issue of the season.
We've tried to make it light and airy, to go with the end of term spirit, but also to offer you some exciting ideas for when you return to school in September. There are also pictures and posters to put on the wall.
Kite-flying seemed to have both a summer and autumn feel to it, so we decided to look for ways to help you and your pupils to catch the wind. Ted Wragg has drawn up a fool-proof set of instructions to ensure that their creations are air-worthy. We also have a TES Primary first - a specially commissioned short story by Pratima Mitchell, set in India, where kites soar along with the dreams of a boy and a girl.
And that's not all. You can take a day-trip back in time to the Crystal Palace built in 1851 for the Great Exhibition, and find out how those inventive Victorians pulled it off; sail off to ancient Greece to teach maths and float down the Nile on a CD-Rom.
As for me, I've got to fly! We'll be back in September. Meanwhile, have a great summer, and may the wind be always at your back.
