As part of our energy topic Year 5 visited the Great Britain Centre at Swaffham to find out about how wind energy is produced. The class built their own mini wind turbines and investigated how the number, size and angle of the blades influenced the speed – this was great fun.
We also got to sit inside the world’s fastest electric car NEMESIS which reaches a maximum speed of 151mph!
Lastly but the best bit – we got to climb to the top of the turbine -300 steps! The view was amazing, we could not believe how fast the turbine blades were spinning and how much the turbine swayed – it was a very very windy day
We also visited the Library for a workshop about refugees;we made postcards to welcome refugees to Norwich who have sadly had to flee their homes and countries in order to feel safe.
