On Thursday the 13th of November Class 4 went on our Yorkshire Water trip. Our first stop off was at the Headingly water treatment site. We started by discussing the water cycle and establishing children's level of understanding as well as discussing harmful things contained in untreated water.
We were amazed to learn that there was only one full time member of staff working this whole plant! Also, it was fascinating to realise how quickly the cleaning process worked - a full cycle took less than an hour to turn dirty water to clean water.
Overall it was a fascinating trip and I am sure we all came away having learnt many things we had no idea about before the visit. This trip also serves as a great launch-pad for our latest Science topic on separating materials.
