  • Lets Go Fly A Kite

    Rational

    The kite maker needs help to design and make a new kite for his collection. We need to

    take a look at the kites already on the market and decide what we like about them. We

    will learn how to design, make and evaluate our own kite considering the best materials

    to use. So that we can make a kite with parents at home we will write a set of

    instructions for someone else to follow.

    writing narratives about personal experiences and those of others (real and fictional)

    -Based on the narrative Stuck by Oliver Jeffers , the bright red kite by Wendy Hargreaves or animated short story The boy with no kite https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hipx6HJs4XQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJN4XSPzoUE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZBVFMGj9DmA

    writing about real events

    writing for different purposes

    Instruction writing

    - How to make a kite write a

    clear set of instructions that

    can be followed by someone

    at home

    Recount of real event

    - Letters to the kite maker

    Evaluate

    What makes a good kite

    Explore and evaluate a range of

    existing kites

    Design

    design functional kites

    generate, develop, model and communicate their ideas through talking, drawing, templates and mock-ups

    Make

    select from and use a range of tools and equipment to perform practical tasks such as cutting, shaping, joining and finishing

    select from and use a wide range of materials and components (linked to science)

    evaluate their ideas and products against design criteria

    Technical knowledge

    build the structure of a kite, exploring how they can be made stronger, stiffer and more stable

    Working Scientifically

    ask simple questions and

    recognise that they can be

    answered in different ways

    observing closely, using simple

    equipment

    performing simple tests

    use their observations and ideas

    to suggest answers to questions

    gather and record data to help in

    answering questions.

    identify and compare the

    suitability of a variety of

    everyday materials, including

    wood, metal, plastic, glass, brick,

    rock, paper and cardboard for

    particular uses

    find out how the shapes of solid

    objects made from some

    materials can be changed by

    squashing, bending, twisting and

    stretching

    English

    Outcome

    Kite flying extravaganza and child led kite making workshop

    Thinking Habits of mind Work well as a group Communicate clearly (Instruction writing and recordings) Think creatively (Designing own games) Thinking hats White (facts) How to play each game. Measuring and comparing distances Yellow/black positive/caution What worked well?/What did not work?/How could games be improved? Green creative think- What new games can we create? How can we solve problems that arise? Thinking maps Flow maps instruction writing, Circle maps what do we know about moving already, Bubble maps descriptive writing

    Creativity

    Creative thinking

    Evaluating, designing and making kites

    Designing own games, evaluating and improving

    Problem solving in ICT to debug games

    Posters to invite parents

    ICT Computational thinking designing games using 2diy and write instructions Digital literacy Presentation of instructions using 2publish+

    /Microsoft publisher, posters to invite parents

    Maths Measuring- Taught in week 3 (app into DT) choose and use appropriate standard units to estimate and measure length/height in any direction (m/cm); to the nearest appropriate unit, using rulers.

    Lets go fly a kite

    Hook A local kite maker needs your help to design a new kite to add to his collection.

    Can you help?

    Year 2

    Spring 2

    Home learning Children have designed and made their own basic kites in

    school. At home children will be encouraged to use what they

    have learnt to make their own kites in the theme of recycling to be part of the extravaganza (link to Eco)
