St Cuthbert's First School Class 3 took part in the Great British Water Project.

The children in Class 3 of St Cuthbert's First School took part in the Great British Water Project and collected rainwater to see how acidic it was by testing its PH value.

They conducted the same tests on tap water both at the school, a future member of the Bishop Bewick Catholic Education Trust, and then at home for comparison.

“These pupils have been learning about water and how it is the most valuable resource in the world,” said St Cuthbert's First School headteacher Clare McGregor.
