In our Topic work this term we are looking at FLIGHT. The children have all designed and made their own kites using: thin card, cellophane, tissue paper, sugar paper, skewers, string and then decorating them.
We then tried them out on the playground and all of them flew.
Maybe Woodpeckers will become great designers when they grow up!!
