Year 4 Toilets guided reading

Toilets! We all use them but how many of us know how they work? This explanation text for year 4 and P5, linking to animals including humans, explains what happens to your wee and poo when you flush the toilet. A diagram of a toilet is labelled with expanded captions, including key vocabulary such as dual flush, cistern, valve, float, s-bend and inlet valve.
