Lower Foundation Phase – Pipeline Challenge

As a fun and fitting end to our ‘Pitter, Patter, Splish, Splosh’ topic, all Lower Foundation Phase children took part in The Pipeline Challenge today, raising a total of £59.00. This money will be used to help provide children in the developing world with clean, safe water. Pupils  formed a long line and then passed water to each other in a variety of containers including buckets, jugs, cups, bowls and  wellies. We completed the challenge on the School yard and even went over the fort! All children had great fun while raising money for a worthy cause.

We have learnt that people in some countries have to walk a long way to collect their water. They sometimes carry it in containers on their heads. We have had fun having a go at this. We measured how far we could travel without spilling any water.


We will be completing the ‘Pipeline Challenge’ to raise money for Water Aid soon.
