Year one students took to the skies last Tuesday to learn about wind! They showcased their kite flying skills to look at the direction of the wind as well as conditions which make great kite flying. As part of our topic children also looked at a wind sock which shows the direction of the wind as well as how windy it is. They discussed the Beaufort scale used to measure the strength of the wind and its direction. As part of the science curriculum children have discussed which material would be best for making their own kite. There were smiles all round as each child had a turn at flying a kite.
