We start this unit by thinking about how energy can be changed and transformed into things that are good. Think back to our recent trip to Shoreham power station, all that machinery that power all the gadgets and devices you are using to read these words!

The energy and power that we have within us can also be transformed into things that are good, just look at the way people have helped support each other throughout the country and world at the moment:

Have you been joining in with the clap for carers?
