The children in Swallows have been looking at sustainability this term within their topic. We have been researching wind turbines and their use and how we can build them. We had a visit from our builder Mr Tate who answered our questions and helped us think about our plans for making our own wind turbines.
On our DT day we were joined by some of the children in Falcons, who helped us to design and build our turbines. We made sure we used the information we had gathered about materials from our science and about the structure of the turbine from Mr Tate. After we had built our turbines, we tested them for strength, if they were waterproof and whether they were able to spin in the wind.
