"We went to the Museum and learnt about water. It was brilliant! We turned dirty water into clean water. I really liked it. I asked lots of questions. It was excellent.”

For key stage 1 and 2 we have a pre-prepared day visit plan themed 'The Story of Water'. This visit includes a presentation by museum staff on water as a substance in its various forms, the water cycle and several practical activities involving water including: building a simple water filter; making a water wheel and powering it with water guns; exploring water pressure using leaky bottles and constructing a 'tippy tap' as used in many developing countries to reduce the spread of infectious diseases. The day aims to be fun as well as educational. As one year 2 pupil put it:
"We went to the Museum of Power and learnt about water. It was brilliant! We turned dirty water into clean water. I really liked it. I asked lots of questions. It was better than school. It was excellent".
