This morning we had a Western Water incursion which is provided free to schools and kindergartens by Western Water.

Jackie spent 45 minutes with us teaching us about water and the water cycle.

We learnt the importance of saving water and learnt about the Western Water mascot ‘Sammy the Snake’. We looked at the difference between old nozzles on hoses and water saving nozzles.

We discussed the different uses of water and learnt that it is very important. We use it for so many things including drinking, cleaning, washing, helping plants grow and to make things including cars and plastic.

The water cycle is very interesting. Water evaporates into water vapour and goes high into the sky to make clouds. Then it gets cold and the vapour turns back into a liquid as rain. It if gets really cold it can freeze and become snow or hail. It then keeps going around in a cycle.

We listened to a story about the water cycle and then acted it out using costumes.

Below are some photos from our play.
