Year 4 and a wonderful water tour with Severn Trent Water!

Year 4 were hard at work learning hands-on all about water.

On Thursday 11th April 2019, Year 4 were treated to a morning of interactive learning about water and the water cycle. Severn Trent Water's Phil, Dave and Richard took us all on the "Wonderful Water Tour". There were lots of activities which enabled us to learn about the ways water is processed and how we can help to conserve water, which is such a precious resource.

We climbed into a hole to mend pipes, using spanners and wearing high-vis, protective clothing; played detective scientists trying to work out the source of pollution;  explored a water treatment works using VR headsets; learnt to check for leaks under the road and unblocked a replica sewer which had all sorts of pretend rubbish that should not have been flushed down the toilet.

We hope you like looking at these photos from our exciting morning. Thank you Severn Trent Water!
