A Visit from an Electrician

On Friday 28 September, Mr Perkins came into school to talk to us about his profession as an electrician. He explained what an electrician was and what some of the tasks he has to do on a daily basis as part of his profession.

He explained how he ensures he is safe when doing anything with electricity.  We were then given the opportunity to carry out one of the jobs that electricians do – fitting a conduit and wiring.

We worked in teams to complete different conduit circuits, ensuring that we were safe by wearing goggles and gloves.  At the end of the session we helped Mr Perkins to complete an electrical circuit to get some lights to work, and then we asked him questions about his job.
