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

    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
