Affinity Water Education Days.

A Girl Pond Dipping
Wonderful Water – at our centre (KS1)

Students gain an understanding of how the water cycle works, how water supports life, where their tap water comes from, and an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

Living Things and their Habitats – at our centre (KS1)

Students will find and identify, using simple keys, both pond creatures and minibeasts and have some understanding of how they have adapted to their habitat. They will gain an understanding of basic food chains and an appreciation of how all living things in our local ecosystem are connected.

Wonderful Water – at our centre (KS2)

Students gain an understanding of where their tap water comes from, common pollutants found in water and how they are removed, and an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

Rolling Rivers – at our centre (KS2)

Students gain an understanding of where water comes from, how it gets from source to tap, how rivers work and the impact humans can have on their environment, as well as an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

STEM Water Challenge – at our centre (KS2)

Students gain an understanding of the STEM behind the water industry, where their tap water comes from, and develop an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

Living Things and their Habitats – at our centre (KS2)

Students will find and identify both pond and woodland minibeasts and have some understanding of how they have adapted to their habitat. They will learn how all species are interdependent and an appreciation of how they must look after their local catchment area to preserve the ecosystem.

Water, Rocks and Soils Day – at our centre (KS2)

Students gain an understanding of where water comes from, how it gets from source to tap, and an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved. They also learn why rocks and soils are important within the water industry.

STEM in the Water Industry – at our centre (KS3 – KS5)

Students gain an understanding of the the STEM behind the water industry, scientific processes involved in getting clean and safe drinking water to their taps, where water comes from, common pollutants found in water and how they are removed, and an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

Environmental Science – at our centre (KS3 – KS5)

Students will gain an understanding of how water resources are managed within the water industry. Depending on the choice of sessions,they will focus on either river catchment management, water quality, water supply management or water treatment processes and conservation.

Wonderful Water – at your school (KS1)

Students gain an understanding of how the water cycle works, how water supports life, where their tap water comes from, and an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

Pollution Solutions Day – at your school (KS1)

Students will understand what is meant by the term pollution and understand how it can affect our waterways. They will explore the impacts of water pollution and find a range of practical solutions to common pollution problems.

Water Audit – at your school (KS2)

Students survey their school and collect data to establish how water is being used and possibly wasted. They will be able to identify key areas for improvement in water usage behaviours, which could be incorporated into a school-led campaign/ initiative following the water audit day.

STEM Water Challenge – at your school (KS2)

Students gain an understanding of the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths involved in the building, maintenance and daily operations of the water industry. They will learn about the scientific processes involved in getting clean and safe drinking water to their taps, where water comes from and an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

Pollution Solutions Day – at your school (KS2)

Students will investigate and explore a variety of common pollutants and ways in which they can affect our water sources. They will begin to understand the importance of water conservation and recognise that simple solutions exist for many pollution problems. This will help them make more informed choices as consumers.

Water, Rocks and Soils Day – at your school (KS2)

Students develop an understanding about the importance of rocks and soils within the water industry. They will learn about the different layers of the Earth and consider the properties of soil through interactive activities. They will also investigate and categorise rocks through a variety of different practical tests.

STEM in the Water Industry – at your school (KS3 – KS5)

Students gain an understanding of the the STEM behind the water industry, scientific processes involved in getting clean and safe drinking water to their taps, where water comes from, common pollutants found in water and how they are removed, and an appreciation of why and how water should be conserved.

Environmental Science – at your school (KS3 – KS5)

Students will gain an understanding of how water resources are managed within the water industry. Depending on the choice of sessions, they will focus on either local and global water issues, water supply management, or river catchment management.
