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 the seven stars of Matariki. It is the name of the Maori new year. When you look up in the sky the stars disappear in late April. The stars come back in winter in late May or early June. A name for the stars are the 7 sisters. Matariki is the eldest star and guides her sisters to their place in the sky. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. The Maori people catch kai moana. Ww forgive and forget people who have made us sad. We fly and make kites. They tell stories from the past. They plant winter crops.
