Electricity Topic

We are learning about Electricity.
We learned that Germany uses the most wind energy in the world. We also found out that there are 16 wind farms in Scotland.Wind is a renewable energy source, this means that it will never run out.The USA is the second largest country to use the most wind energy.Wind turbines make electricity by converting the wind into energy. Some people think wind farms are ugly and they are also dangerous to birds and bats because of the large rotor blades.

  6. Hi P3,4, 5
    Thanks for visiting our blog and leaving a comment. We are glad that you enjoyed reading about our electricity topic. The issue of wind farms sparked a debate in our class. We also could not agree about wind farms. Here are some of the things that were discussed in our debate.
    The team who were against the building of wind farms (Team A) suggested that they were not very nice to look at (the opposing team (Team B) who think that Scotland should use more windfarms disagreed, they think that they add something interesting to look at, and suggested that because they are white they are very striking).
    Team A thought that it was not a good idea to develop more wind farms because lots of countryside would have to be damaged to build on and birds and bats can also get killed because of the rotor blades.
    Team B thought that the damage to the environment could be justified because the wind turbines were environmentally friendly and would help to reduce pollution in the environment from power stations. Team B did think it was very sad that bats and birds could get killed and thought that the blades could turn off for a short period of time if they were hit by something, just in case it was a bird or a bat. They thought this would help to reduce the number of birds or bats killed or hurt in this way.
    What do the children at Chapelgreen think?

  7. Hi P5,

    We loved reading about your electricity topic and we are learning about electricity too.
    We also think that you are excellent bloggers because you have put in information that is useful to us.
    Our class can’t agree on whether wind farms are ugly or not. Some people think that they are just windmills on a farm and some people think that they look messy.

  8. Thankyou for your comment Mrs McNeil. It has sparked quite a lot of conversation in our class. We decided to have a debate about the issue of using more wind energy. We will report the outcome on the blog.

  9. Hi Primary 5, Heather’s mum here. I like your information on Electricity – very interesting. I think Scotland should use more wind energy now, we certainly get enough wind here.
