The children were set a wind power challenge!
As we have been learning about ourselves over last term, we decided it was time to start thinking a bit further afield. We started thinking about how people in other countries live. We started by reflecting on how much we take energy for granted. We took on the wind turbine challenge and used only a handful of resources to create a device that would create enough energy to lift a cup off the ground. They had to be resourceful and not wasteful, making sure they recycled bits of card that were discarded rather than using up a new piece. This helped children to understand how poorer families must reuse materials in order to gain the energy they need.
