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 five minute shower only uses 7 buckets of water.  To save water we also need to turn off the runnng taps when we are brushing our teeth and only use the water to rinse our brushes when we need to.  Did you know that on average we use 155 litres of water per day, through using the toilet, washing ourselves, clothes and dishes and cooking food.
