WATER WATER EVERYWHERE!

As part of Year 4’s learning about rivers and the water cycle,a team from South East Water led a workshop teaching the children about where water comes from, how it reaches their homes and the importance of conserving it!

The most exciting part of the workshop was splitting into two teams, and being set the engineering challenge to design a pipe network to transport water around a village. To test the designs, water was let through the pipes whilst Mrs Casewell kept her fingers crossed that Class 4 were excellent engineers. She was not disappointed as both networks worked efficiently and there were no spillages.

One team was awarded the prize for creating the most direct route and also the most cost effective (South East water would be impressed); the other team was  awarded the prize for the most creative network, although not the most efficient!

Class 4 were set the 4 minute challenge in a bid to save water by showering. How many of you have taken up the challenge? Let Mrs Casewell know how well your family is getting on with this.
