Do we need electricity? What do you think? The other week H’s class at school were having a discussion about whether we really needed electricity or not. I think his year 2 class were generally of the opinion that we didn’t need it, but it was very useful indeed. The class teacher asked ” Does anyone think we need electricity?” H put his hand up to answer.
His answer was yes and when he was asked to justify why he thought that, he said that our brains use electricity. I’m sure his teacher thought something along the lines of there’s always one! But as his mother, I’m very proud of H for knowing that and not being afraid to say it in front of the whole class. He’s always been very interested in science and how things work, so he’s built up a good knowledge of scientific facts for a 6.5 year old. He was also chuffed, this weekend to be told by doctor friend of ours, that our hearts also need electricity to beat. More facts to back up his statement that we do need electricity.
