This half term in design and technology we are learning about kites.

We have started our topic by looking at kites and identifying the different parts and how they are made. We plan to use what we have found out to help us make our own kites.

We even had a go at flying kites on the playground.

How you can support your child at home

  • If you have a kite at home, have a look at how it is made. Identify the properties of the different parts, e.g. the spine and spar need to be rigid and strong.  Have a go at flying your kite.
  • Research kites on the internet. Find out who invented kites, identify the different types of kites available.
