SS Great Britain trip

Year one and two were fortunate enough to go on a fantastic trip to SS Great Britain. Having been learning about Brunel in history, it was great to see some of his amazing engineering close up. The children took part in a workshop where they learnt how the steamships engine worked and also discovered more about Brunel's life. They had the opportunity to explore the amazing ship and discover what life might have been like along the long voyage to America. They also got to go underneath the ship to see the enormous propeller in the dry dock. A fact filled and fun day was had by everyone.
