As part of our Erasmus Project, Year 3 have been designing and making kites.

First we researched what a kite would look at, what different materials would be needed and its size. Then we thought about what a kite should not be made of.

Working in small groups we used bamboo skewers and straws to make the frames for the kites. We then used a range of materials like tissue paper, newspaper, cellophane, cling-film, corrugated card and tissue paper to cover the frame.

We weren’t sure which ones would fly and which ones wouldn’t.  And then we tested them.
