What a fantastic day! We have had a visit from Isambard Kingdom Brunel (from Blast from the Past) who told us a lot of facts and information about his life, his work and his legacy.
The children listened really well, learned a lot and had many interesting questions. Then everybody took part in a quiz about Brunel's creations - it was amazing to see how much they had all remembered and got quite competitive!
Later, the children took part in a bridge building workshop. Creations were made from paper or card but then had to be strengthened. We tested the bridges by adding trains and weights. It was a lot of fun!
After lunch, the children played a "Brunel" board game in groups. There were lots of facts to read along the way and everyone enjoyed the game. We finished the day by looking at a number of Victorian artefacts and had to write down what we thought they were used for. Much to the amusement of the adults, what the children thought was a "soup bowl" turned out to be a chamber pot! The children certainly found it interesting to discover what life was like in Victorian times.
A big thank you to Mr. Chapman for coming in and inspiring us today.
We were really lucky to have a visit from Oliver's Dad today! He brought some propellers and a model boat to show us. This links with our learning on Isambard Kingdom Brunel that we will start next week! Oliver became the class teacher and told us all lots of information about the propellers, how they work and how the model boat was made. There were lots of interesting questions and facts! Thank you, Oliver! And thank you to Dad too!
