R9 Cilfynydd Waterworks trip

On 2nd October R9 had the opportunity to visit Cilfynydd Waterworks to reinforce the topics they are studying as part of their Geography lessons.

The pupils looked at the cause and effect of global warming with a particular focus on flooding. In the afternoon the R9 looked at renewable energy sources and the challenges we all face in making our world more sustainable. 

The pupils completed an investigation to blow up a balloon where they learnt about anaerobic digestion using yeast, water and sugar. They showed their knowledge by answering lots of questions about renewable and non-renewable energy sources and were very good treasure hunters to complete a large scale puzzle with all the pieces collected. They worked together in teams throughout the day to complete tasks linked to climate change, renewable and non-renewable energy sources. 

The pupils had a fun day which reinforced their learning of topics covered in school.
