The Water Explorer Team Visits Mayflower Primary School
Posted on 9 May 2018

Last week the Water Explorer Team visited the wonderful Year 5 Students at Mayflower Primary School in Leicester. We discussed how we can save water in our day to day lives, as well as how different countries around the world have limited access to water. We also played the Secret Water game and the students learnt about the hidden water that is used to make our food. The group wrote their own creative raps for the Rap Tap Tap challenge and also made some water saving pledges whilst completing the Water Walkway challenge. You can find the lovely video Mayflower put together of our trip on their website: http://mayflower.j2webby.com/?p=13673

Thank you for having us Mayflower – we are looking forward to seeing what you get up to next!
