A Watery Week for Year 5

The Year 5 children managed to fit in not one but two trips out of school last week!

The first was to the Yorkshire Water Treatment Works at Headingley. The classes learnt about all the ‘baddies’ in water and the process undertaken at the Works to clean them out.

Closer to home, the children also took a trip down to the canal to learn about the history of a boat called ‘The Kennet‘ that is celebrating its 70th birthday this year. Volunteers told us all about how the boat was made, the history of the canal, locks and many other things. The highlight for most was seeing the cabin where the boat workers slept and ate – it was rather snug!
