IMG 0401
Thanks to support from Fenland District Council through the Whitemill Local Environment Fund, classes from Elm and Friday Bridge Primary Schools were able to benefit from environmental education courses led by CEES teachers.    The project offered schools in the Whitemill area visits to Coldham wind farm along with workshops in schools on themes such as renewable energy, habitats, minibeasts, rocks and rivers.   Feedback from the classes was excellent from both children and teaching staff.  “Coldham is a great base for learning outside and the children’s knowledge of Energy has greatly increased.   Since returning to School the children have been able to write a more informed piece on how wind turbines work and the pros and cons of Wind Farms.” Teacher, Elm Primary.  “The visit was really fun.  I can’t pick my favourite section but I learnt a lot.” Pupil, Elm Primary.    Further details on workshops and energy related visits to Coldham are available on our website.
