What makes a kite fly ?


We wrote this piece of writing together as a class.
What makes a kite fly?

There are four forces that affect a kite when it is flying. They are gravity, lift, thrust, and drag.


Gravity is the force that keeps us on the ground. The heavier a kite is the harder it is to fly.

Lift is the force pushing the kite off the ground. Lift happens when air moves over the top of the kite at a faster speed than the air that is moving under the bottom of the kite.

The force that makes a kite move through the air is called thrust. Thrust happens with a kite when it is held in one place by its string, while the wind flows around the kite.


As air flows over the kite the wind gets held back a little by the roughness of the fabric. This friction is called drag.

Magical Matariki

 

What is Matariki?

In the sky you will see the 7 Maori new year stars. They disappear in late April and they come back in late May or early June when it is the Maori new year. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. Learning about how the Maori people used the stars to find their way around. We forgive and forget people who have made us sad. We tell stories from the past and weave flax.


Making tidy tens and saying how many we added to make 10.
