Highly Commended in the Key Stage One school entry


Who created it?

Charlotte (Lottie) age 7



“My name is Lottie and I am seven years-old and I live in Stratford-upon-Avon. I am very proud of my town and all of its history and I love learning about it. I enjoy spending time playing with my friends, walking around our beautiful countryside, colouring, being crafty and dancing.”

About my creative response

About my poster: “It is good to show that it is OK to be sad, sometimes we are happy and other times we are sad and cry. It is always good to talk to others and to not give up.”

About my video: “Try to be happy and enjoy life but I wanted to give some hints on what to do if you are sad, never forget to breathe!”


When have you been ‘true to yourself’?

“I was playing on the trampoline with my friend and I showed her what moves I could do and what moves I could not do. I told my friend I was a bit sad I could not do some of the moves but that I was not going to give up and just keep trying and practising and one day I will be able to do the moves.” 


What is your favourite Shakespeare play?

A Midsummer Night’s Dream but I really like The Tempest too.”
