Friends of the Earth ‘Run on Sun’ Competition

This week we had Friends of the Earth to come and visit our classroom!  They came to film us creating an entry for their Run on Sun competition to win a solar panel for the school.

We created our own design for an exciting and colourful solar panel which comes alive when the sun shines through it.

We were inspired by Henri Matisse’s stained glass window designs such as ‘The Tree of Life’.

Window in chapel in Nice, France was designed by Matisse

 

We have learnt a lot this week about different sources of energy and the benefits of solar power and have had lots of fun along the way!

  1. I loved making it but I am very sad that we did not win as we put lots and lots of effort into it!
