Year 1 are flying high making kites!

It is our DT week!

This week we are flying high in Year 1 making kites. We will be learning how to design and make our very own kites, made out of recyclable materials. Both classes have chosen to use plastic bags to cut, stick and weave into kites. We will be testing our kites on our trip to Llandudno on Thursday 23rd March 2017. Once we have flown our kites on the seafront we will be returning to school and carrying out our evaluation, this is when we will be looking at how successful our kites were and how we could improve them next time whether this be using a different joining technique or different materials.

If you would like to design and make your own kites at home, here is the link to our example:
