Let’s Go Fly a Kite – DT project fun

We began our exciting new project by gathering our knowledge about kites.  We then learned about all the different features such as keel, sail, tail and spars.

We then got to grips with simple paper-only kite making. Just look at them fly.

We then tested out different materials for our sail and kite shapes, before designing our own kites.  We learned to use hack saws and cutting blocks safely in order to create our kites.

Fingers crossed for wind tomorrow when we test them!

Update: Success!!!
