Year 5 have started their new milepost 3 IPC unit this week called Making Things Go.

The big idea is that we all use energy to do different things throughout the day, but where does that energy come from? For our entry point, we looked at making some objects move in different ways, including wind power and electric motors. 

We then moved on to consider how we could make our school more green in it’s energy use. We have decided to focus on wind energy first and are now trying to find the best place in school where we could put a wind turbine. To do this, we made our own anemometers to measure the wind speed in different places around the school. However, some of the children don’t think we should have a wind turbine in school due to the size and noise it might produce. What do you think?

Year 5 were blown away this week when they have to find the windiest location at school that would be suitable for a wind turbine. In our IPC unit "Making Things Go" we have been looking at sources of energy to power things. As part of our Geography lesson, Y5 children were tasked to measure the wind at different locations around school to decide where w wind turbine could be placed. To be able to do that the children have to make their own anemometers from paper cups and straws. We were pleased to see many of them spinning on a Windy Thuursday this week! 

Please don't worry though as there are no plans for a wind turbine to go into TBS, but it gave the children an opportunity to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of wind power and consider their local environment and neighbourhood.

Next week we will be looking at how Solar energy could be harnessed for TBS in the future.

Kind regards,
