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 Mataiki


What is Matariki?

Matariki is the group of 7 stars of the Maori new year. At the end of April the stars disappear. They come back again in late May and it is the start of Maori new year. The seven stars are known as the seven sisters. The oldest sister guides her sisters to follow her. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. The Maori people catch fish kai moana and make kites. They also weave flax and tell stories from the past.
