Children from Morven Park Primary School in Kirkby learnt all about energy as part of a special day organised by E.ON.

All 500 pupils took part in the company’s energy educational programme, with activities including foundation pupils learning how to generate electricity by pedalling a specially-adapted bike, pupils reading energy-related books and Year 4 pupils working with fictional characters ‘Smart Alec’ and ‘Neon Bright’ to solve energy challenges.

The day ended with a school sing-a-long about energy and how to save it, performed by Year 6 pupils, pictured above.

Headteacher Mark Watson said: “We’ve really enjoyed having E.ON come along to our school to teach us all about the different aspects of energy in a fun and interactive way. The educational programmes offered by E.ON 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.”
