Severn Trent Water
Today we had a visit from Leanne Town who works at Severn Trent Water. She came to our class to do a water efficiency / water waste workshop. First we learned about the water cycle and where our water comes from, then, we talked about the importance of water and how much water we need to survive.
After that, we worked in groups to do a practical activity. Each group was given a family and some scenario cards to follow. We had to measure out how much water they were using in their daily activities. This included brushing teeth, washing clothes, washing the car and taking a shower/ bath. The measurements on the cards were in litres but we did it in millilitres (a smaller scale). Once finished, we decided whether each family were water savers or water wasters.
We found this workshop very exciting and interesting!
