The children (staff and parents)had a fantastic day visiting the Discovery Museum in Newcastle. At the museum the children took part in a work shop finding out more about George Stephenson and his locomotive train The Rocket. The children were then challenged to design their own locomotive using a variety of materials such as wooden wheels cotton reels, cardboard and paper cups.

The children’s designs were fantastic. We then put their locomotives to the test looking for the locomotive which travelled the furthest in the quickest time
