Let's go fly a kite!

User Rating:  / 1

Our topic is 'The Weather'. As part of our topic work we have designed and made our own kites! We investigated the different parts of a kite and thought about the equipment that we would need to make one. We enjoyed making them but particularly enjoyed flying them! We were very lucky because it was very windy for us this afternoon.
