Yorkshire Water has launched a range of online educational videos for Key Stage 2 students covering a wide range of topics within the water sector.
The lessons, which are delivered via YouTube, have been designed for teachers whose pupils are at home or in school and come with teacher guidance for each subject, student worksheets and extension activities.
Schools registering to deliver the classes to their students will also be supported by Yorkshire Water’s education advisers, who can provide advice on delivering the online lessons, detailed information about the company and take part in live or recorded student Q&A sessions.
Three lessons – The Water Cycle & States of Matter, Water Catchment and Water Treatment – have been released, with more to come ahead of the new school term in September.
The films focus on clean water processes at Yorkshire Water sites in Leeds and Sheffield, as well as how waste is treated at facilities in Bradford and Sheffield.
Yorkshire Water’s Anne Reed said: “We are delighted to be launching our online classes for Key Stage 2 students and their teachers. COVID-19 has meant our education centres across Yorkshire have not been able to welcome children so we’re coming to them through these new lessons.
“Our education advisers will be on-hand to offer support throughout the process, ensuring students get the most out of their experience and have the opportunity to learn how important water is to us and how we process and treat it here at Yorkshire Water.”
Schools and teachers can find more information and register their interest via the Yorkshire Water website.
