Flyng Kites

What a fantastic week we had in Early Years making and flying our own kites!

We looked at some kites and talked about how they flew, what shape they were and the different parts they had. We then decided which materials we would like to use to make our own kites. Using a variety of tools to cut and stick we were able to fix our resources together to make them. Then came the exciting part! All the children went outside to test their own kite to see if it flew.

'It wont fly, it needs to get higher. I need longer string!' 'The wind is making it fly high!' 'I need to run faster to get it to go higher!'

The Romans and the Vikings loved celebrating Natonal Kite Flying day!
