This week, Year 4 had a fantastic workshop on Water Awareness provided by Kingfisher Education. The children explored the world of water and where it comes from. They tested their knowledge of the water cycle, calculated how much water they use, and took part in a ‘Think before you flush’ experiment (toilet paper versus wipes).
The children also discovered ways to save water, they found out about what lurks below in the sewers, looked at how water is used in developing countries and discussed the important issue of water safety. The children were encouraged to develop communication skills, problem solving and team work. They were also presented with real issues and scenarios to encourage them to develop their knowledge and values of water awareness around the world.
The children had a fun and stimulating morning, inspired to pass the message of water safety to friends and family!
The children took away with them water booklets for follow up work and United Utilities gifts to remind them about saving water.
