Learning Together for Life

Class 2 - The Green Britain Centre - 17th January 2017

Class 2 Visit the Green Britain Centre at Swaffham.

On Tuesday the children from class two in Runcton Holme and Wormegay embarked on a visit to the Green Britain Centre at Swaffham. The purpose of the visit was to enhance their learning in Science about Electricity.

The children were greeted by the staff at the centre and given different activities to do.

The first was to investigate how many blades it would take to turn a mini wind turbine and read the number of volts it produced. The children used a different amount of propellers to see which ones were best for the job.

The next activity was to use Brickology to make a moving wind turbine powered with a battery. The children used pictorial instructions to make their model.

Finally the children were given the opportunity to climb the first Wind Turbine to be built in the world, over twenty years ago now. They were given a talk about the turbine as they walked the 305 steps to the top. Once there they had a panoramic view of the surrounding area.  They then had to climb back down the 305 steps to get back to ground level.
