P4/5 Kites

P4/5 have been doing some design technology. They first learnt about kites and then went through the design process to design and make a kite in groups. They created their design criteria and success criteria as a class. After testing the kites they evaluated them and thought about what they could do next time.

Design Criteria:

  • Include all of the necessary parts of the kite.
  • Be attractive to look at (colourful and a nice shape).
  • Use Recycled materials.
  • Use a kite shape that has been previously learnt about.

Success Criteria:
We will know we are successful because our kites:

  • Will fly.
  • Will have all the necessary kite parts.
  • Won’t fall apart.
