Pupils at Cavendish Junior School in Chesterfield have taken part in E.ON’s ‘Play in a Day’ project, learning about different ways to save energy before performing a short play in front of the rest of their school.

The day-long drama workshop took a group of year six pupils through a variety of tasks while exploring the subject of energy through fun and animated activities. The young actors practised songs and took part in drama-based games as they learned about the importance of conserving energy.

Suzanne Doxey, community relations manager at E.ON, said: “We developed Play in a Day because we understand that energy can be a dry subject, particularly for primary school pupils. But by taking part, the children really do get the chance to look at the topic of saving energy in depth, and they all seem to enjoy performing at the end of the day.”

As part of a separate initiative, two other Derbyshire schools were visited by E.ON’s Creative Conductors workshop, which is designed to help pupils’ understanding of electricity, conduction and circuits.
