You are here Our Science & Maths Work Filtration

Sixth class have completed a short study on 'Water'- they started by taking a mixture of clay and water and trying to clean the water by filtration. They then looked at the 'Water System' in our homes - piping it into and out from our houses - in the study they looked at the many and various processes  involved in providing clean drinkable water for our use.  They looked at the cycle of water from: rivers- reservoirs - settling tanks - filter beds - chlorine and fluoride units - storage towers - usage in homes - sewage works - filter beds and back to the river again!! They realised clean water is not something we should take for granted as it takes a lot of hard work and costs a lot of money to bring clean water to our homes.
