Year three and Class 7 have been busy designing, planning and making their very own kites linked to our topic Blown Away.
The children were set the task to help Penguin Blue and his friends find their way back to Antarctica by making a kite to blow them back home. During our DT week at the end of last term, each member of Class 7 spent time creating clever plans and elaborate designs for kites. We settled on the correct type of material to use, based on whether it would be light enough to fly high in to the big blue sky and be wide enough to catch the wind.
We had to use the correct tools, measure accurately and make sure all the pieces were firmly attached! It was hard work! Lots of teamwork and evidence of our school value, Cooperation, being followed.
Here’s how we got on! Even Mr Bradley didn’t mind the mess! 😉
