How toilets work

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 and body system and cells, 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.

This downloadable non-fiction reading pack includes:

  • An A3 reading spread for you to print.
  • Reading comprehension question and answer sheets, differentiated using our magnifying glasses key (on the bottom right). One magnifying glass indicates easier and two means harder.
