Let’s go fly a kite!

Due to the windy weather the children have shown a great interest in kites, they began by creating their own kites. We investigated what materials to use to make our kites fly. The children decided that paper and string would work best.

We worked hard to design our kites with great success they began to fly.

With all the interest in kites we decided to take our learning to the next level by introducing our very own Cart Mill kite.

We went onto the grassy field beside the nursery, for this kite we needed a bigger space to let our kite soar high in the sky, we had a great time running and jumping high trying to catch the coloured tail of our kite.

It was flying so high in the sky.

This has been a great learning experience for our children, developing many skills in the process.

I hope you have enjoyed seeing the kites the children have brought home. On the next windy day maybe your children can show you how to make a kite.
