Pupils from Morven Park Primary School in Kirkby-in-Ashfield have had the opportunity to learn all about energy as part of a special day organised by E.ON.

During the day all 500 pupils at the school took part in E.ON’s energy educational programmes.

Activities included foundation pupils learning how to generate electricity by pedaling a specially adapted bike and pupils reading energy related books with support from E.ON volunteers. Year four pupils worked with fictional characters ‘Smart Alec’ and ‘Neon Bright’ to solve energy challenges as part of E.ON’s Smart Kids programme.

Mark Watson, head teacher at Morven Park Primary School, said: “We’ve really enjoyed having E.ON come along to our school for the day to teach us all about the different aspects of energy in a fun and interactive way.

“The educational programmes give our pupils the chance to learn important messages about saving energy in a way that’s sometimes hard to teach in a traditional classroom environment.

E.ON UK Chief Executive Tony Cocker added: “Our energy education programmes offer pupils the opportunity to learn about energy in a really fun, engaging and practical hands-on way.”
