On Monday the whole school was joined for an assembly by Sarah from Affinity Water who talked to us about STEM - Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths. We learnt that not all scientists wear white coats, and how different jobs at Affinity Water use STEM in different ways. We heard how they deliver 900 million litres to 3.5 million people every day and thought about the different ways that we use water. We all use about 160 litres a day and we talked about how we could use less water through little actions.
After our assembly Year 5 had an opportunity to take part in a STEM workshop with Sarah, transporting water around the school hall. It was great fun and children learnt a lot as they took part in the activity.
