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.

What is Matariki?
Matariki is the name for the Maori new year and the name of the seven stars. The 7 stars of magnificent Matariki disappear from the sky in April. They come back in early June. It is the start of the Maori new year. Just forgive and forget the people who have made us sad. We catch kai moana and make kites.

Yesterday room 24 started making the green colour of traffic light jelly. First Miss Szymanik boiled the water. Taoro put the crystals in the bowl. Miss Szymanik poured 2 cups of water into the bowl. Kyzyl stirred the jelly crystals until they were dissolved. Lastly Miss Szymanik put the jelly in the fridge. The jelly tasted extraordinary.

Last Friday Point England School went to the beach for our picnic. First we got our hats. We lined up and walked to the hall. Mr Burt told us the rules. Next we walked to the reserve. We sat on the smooth green grass. Then I played on the beach. After that we went for a swim. I went home with my mum.
