Bright Little Sparks!

A big thank you to Mrs Gilmartin and Mr Taylor who joined Year 2 today for an exciting afternoon all about electricity. As an expert in the field, Mrs Gilmartin gave the boys a fascinating presentation on renewable energy.  She even generated enough electricity by spinning a magnet between some coils of copper wire to light a bulb - no batteries or mains power required!  The boys used their knowledge of circuit making to create their own torches and Mr Taylor, a manager at Electricity North West, had the boys generating their own energy through pedal power.  The faster they pedalled, the more electricity they generated.  Save on your electricity bills, this may be just be the future of running the lights at home!
