Free opportunities for schools at Yorkshire Water Education Centres

Yorkshire Water is taking bookings at its education centres for the summer term.

Schools are given the free opportunity to learn about the water cycle, the environment and how the company ensures the county gets a constant supply of fresh water.

All three education centres - Ewden, Headingley and Tophill Low, have been awarded the Learning Outside the Classroom Quality Badge.

Key stage two students will get the opportunity to see how Yorkshire Water removes the ‘baddies’ from the water we treat, before getting a guided tour of the facilities. There are also activities and experiments.

Yorkshire Water Education and volunteering Manager Anne Reed said "Our education centres were developed with the help of teachers to cover the core elements of the National Curriculum Key Stage 2, including numeracy, literacy, geography and science. We receive excellent reviews from teachers who visit with visitors telling us that their learning objectives have been met in full.”
