The Wonders of Sewage!

posted in: Uncategorized | 0

Year 3 and 4 have been lucky enough to travel the (not so) great distance to Didcot to learn about what happens after the toilet is flushed… We treated ourselves to a trip to Didcot Sewage Works to investigate further just how water arrives from the sewers and the various processes it goes through before it can re-enter the water cycle. We were braced for the aroma wafting in the air and were particularly animated when learning about the good bacteria that helps to clean the water. After our guided tour of the site, we gladly accepted our water filtration challenge; using gravel, sand, cotton wool and filter paper to purify the ‘Poo soup’.
