We have made a video for non-keyworker children, to show you what  the classrooms looks like and to explain what you need to do when you arrive at school. Unfortunately we didn't manage to make a video of Red Kite classroom specifically, but this will give you an idea of what to expect and what you will need to do when you arrive at school.

You can find it in the Video Resource Centre :
