Flying paper planes

As we'll be making small and large kites to fly to celebrate Matariki this week, today we looked at how flight works. We brainstormed to see what understanding we already had, then watched this video about how planes fly.

Then we made our own paper planes. We went outside and had a flying competition. The planes went in all different directions: one flew from by Tautoru to the doors of Mahutonga, some went backwards in large spirals, some hit the ground fast, and others caught the wind for a while and then sank. It was loads of fun.

We'll be talking further about the language of flight as we make our kites this week.
