The pupils rounded off the day by learning and rehearsing a play about the importance of saving energy which was performed to the rest of their school.

The Energy in a Play workshops were organised by E.ON which is committed to helping educate communities about saving energy and smarter energy solutions.

Kerry Towndrow-Birds, headteacher at Barlborough Primary School, said: “Our pupils really got involved in E.ON’s Energy in a Play workshop. By performing the play at the end of the day to the whole school all of the pupils have gained from the activity and picked up some ideas about the steps we can all take around the home to make sure we’re using energy wisely.”
