United Utilities national schools competition

Year 6 have just finished producing radio adverts in science lessons for a United Utilities national schools competition. The brief was to produce a radio advert, no more that 60 seconds in length, to raise awareness about how to reduce water usage and thereby protecting UK wetlands and water supplies. They spent some weeks learning about wetlands and wildlife, including a visit to Martin Mere, and then applied some of their knowledge and interest to this radio project.

United Utilities Water Saving Guide

The creators of the winning advert get to record it professionally at a local radio station, and their advert will then be used by United Utilities as part of a campaign to conserve water supplies.

The adverts that they produced are really impressive and fun. The finished adverts were sent to United Utilities, and if you’d like to listen to them, please select one of the following links:

Four of the pupils have written their own blogs:
