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?

Matariki is a new year for the Maori and the 7 stars. The 7 stars come back again in late May or early June. It is time to celebrate and it means it's the Maori new year. Have you ever seen the 7 stars in the night sky? They are called the 7 sisters. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways, like flying and making kites. When the 7 stars are light and bright we forgive and forget.
