Year 4 Learning About Insulation

To immerse the children in the topic of Explorers and Keeping Warm, we visited the Soanes Centre in Mile End and learnt all about how to keep our homes well insulated. We used different materials and thought about the way we could ensure the heat did not escape. Our homes were tested with a heat source (a light bulb) and thermometer. The results were shown as a line graph on the computer so we could see the temperature rise (and even fall).
