Yorkshire Water Treatment Plant Year 4

In May the Year 4 pupils had an opportunity to visit the Yorkshire Water treatment plant in Headingly

Leeds. The trip was closely related to the Science Topic ‘Dangers to living things.’ During the visits children

took part in interactive lessons to learn about the water cycle, water saving and water wasting measures.

Experience staff provided a detailed tour of the treatment plant explaining the various processes

undertaken in order to supply clean drinking water. Children were given the chance to wear high visibility

clothing and role play being construction workers who had to repair a burst water pipe. The visit ended

with an in-depth activity focusing on the differences between communities in Ethiopia and the Yorkshire

region. They explored how villagers accessed their water supplies and the benefits of working with Water

Aid to bring clean water and sanitation to those less fortunate than ourselves.
