Water Bus

On Friday 16th December the Norther Ireland Water Bus visited our school.  We were taught that we need to drink 6-8 glasses of water per day and that our muscles store the water.  When we drink fizzy drinks we need to use the water to digest the sugary drinks, which is not good for our muscles or our bodies.  We also learned that taking a bath uses 20 buckets of water but a fi
