Bright Sparks in Year 2!

A big thank you to Mr Taylor, Charlie Cooper's father who came in to Year 2 today to talk about the interesting world of power generation.  Mr Taylor works for Electricity North West which provide the electricity for us here at APS.  He showed us plans for all the electrical cables around our school and explained how the electricity gets from the power stations to us here in our classroom.  We also had great fun making our own green bike power.  Move over Bradley Wiggins and Victoria Pendleton - Mr Jones and Mrs Bacon had electrifying performances on a power-generating bike.  They went so fast they created enough power to run a television!  A fascinating afternoon to complement our science topic on electricity.
