My Weekend

On Saturday morning me and my mum and my little brother and dad went to my cousins football at G.I. After that we came back from the football. Later we brought some ice-cream.

What makes a kite fly?

We wrote this piece of writing together as a class.
What makes a kite fly?

There are four forces that affect a kite when it is flying. They are gravity, lift, thrust, and drag.

Gravity is the force that keeps us on the ground. The heavier a kite is the harder it is to fly.

Lift is the force pushing the kite off the ground. Lift happens when air moves over the top of the kite at a faster speed than the air that is moving under the bottom of the kite.

The force that makes a kite move through the air is called thrust. Thrust happens with a kite when it is held in one place by its string, while the wind flows around the kite.

As air flows over the kite the wind gets held back a little by the roughness of the fabric. This friction is called drag.

Magical Matariki

What is Matariki?

Matariki is a group of seven stars. The seven stars disappear in late April. They come back in early June and it is the new year. The seven stars are also named the 7 sisters. When the crops grow the stars are brightly shining. We gather seafood. We celebrate Matariki in lots of different ways. We catch some kai moana. We fly and make kites. The people also weave flax.

My Holiday Highlight

 Last week my family and cousins and Aunite had a BBQ at my house. First my dad said “ who wants a burger?” So this boy named Alex came to my dad said “go and get some  bread in the house. Alex went to get the burger inside. Finally it was dark so we've went inside but my cousin and Auntie were outside. I felt happy because it was lovely.
