Three Curriculum Link Examples 

  • Maths – use measurement to decide how much pupils should fill their water bottle to avoid wasting water.
  • Geography – the water cycle and including access to ‘clean’ drinking water around the world (Global Citizenship too).
  • Science – investigate the different states of matter in relation to global warming.

Look at our Water Pinterest for ideas and inspiration.

Visit your local water company
Making links with your local water company is a great way to bring the water topic to life. Many have education centres with experts on hand to inspire your pupils, they can also come to you – giving talks and workshops in school. Your pupils could document their visit with photos, videos and diaries that they could then present to the rest of the school and display on your Eco-Board.

Do you have a great idea for a Water National Call to Action?

Then get in touch and let’s work together to link to the Seven Steps and launch across all 18,600 Eco-Schools in England!

If you have a wonderful example for our Water topic, let us know!

Penshurst Primary School

At Penshurst we are keen to save water, so decided to work on the Eco-School topic Water in our Action Plan. We placed bottles on display as a visual demonstration of how much water a family in Africa has each day, then throughout the day, we tried to use less water by not flushing as regularly and using hand gel to wash our hands instead of water. The children found the day really interesting!
