Let’s go Fly a Kite!
British Science Week started today and the theme for this year is ‘Flight’.
Year 1 took part in a flight workshop today. They found out how to make a sled kite.
To make your own sled kite you will need:
- a sheet of A3 paper
- some string
- masking tape
- piece of card
Step 1. Fold the sheet in half and open it out.
Step 2. Fold the sheet in from both sides so the shorter edges meet exactly in the middle. You will end up with 4 equal sections.
Step 3. Fold over the top corners and glue them down.
Step 4. Stick the string (bridle) along the bottom of the folded corners with the masking tape.
Step 5. Knot a long piece of string (line) to the middle of the bridle.
Step 5. Stick the end of the line to a piece of card to create a spool.
Step 6. Fly your kite!
A BIG thank you to Mrs Darling and Mrs Power for their help this afternoon. Great fun was had by all!
To launch our Flight topic Year 1 discussed the Big Question set by Mrs Joyce .
The Big Question!
If humans could fly like birds
What would be positive, negative and interesting?
There were lots of great ideas from Year 1. What do you think? Please share your ideas with us!
