Each year our education programme is supporting 15 schools (c. 450 children) across our renewable portfolio. This includes an annual visit and renewables workshop to Shepham for the Stone Cross Primary School.
The sessions are designed to help children familiarise themselves with the technology and understand the importance of renewable energy in modern day society and give them a good understanding of the impacts of climate change. All teaching follows The National Curriculum and links to subjects including science, maths and geography. Classroom resources such as solar powered toys are also provided to assist learning.
‘The trip was fab. The children learnt about the use of wind turbines and why they are so important. We thoroughly enjoyed the activities that were organised. All the children and adults had a lovely time’ – Clare Bambrough, class teacher.
‘My son has been completely absorbed by the building of the wind farm and was really excited to be coming here to see them’ – Mark Stevenson, parent.
