How toilets work

Toilets! We all use them but how many of us know how they work? This explanation text for year 4, 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.
