Welcome to the fantastic new learning resource 'The Green Classroom' that provides key stage 2 teachers with lesson plans and work books that use a range of key primary school subjects to teach the curriculum topic of water.
Recently launched with the help of Calendar's weatherman Jon Mitchell, the 'Green Classroom' aims to teach children about the water cycle and the importance of water conservation. Watch our video clip below to find out more:
A series of nine lesson plans that use science, maths, citizenship, geography, english, art & design and ICT.
Download the below fun, colourful work booklets to use with your class.
We've also created a certificate that commends pupils who've worked extra hard on this topic - just click on the link below to download as many copies as you like.

For those who have completed the module with your class - congratulations! We'd be delighted to send you a certificate for you to display in your classroom to say that you're officially a Yorkshire Water Green Classroom. All we need you to do is email us and we'll post it out to you as soon as we can.
So that we can make sure that the Green Classroom is as an effective teaching resource as it can be, when emailing us, please provide your thoughts on the resource and how you think it can be improved.
