Year 2 visit the Discovery Museum!

We had a fantastic day at the Discovery Museum today. We took part in two workshops. Firstly, a workshop all about The Great Fire of Newcastle and Gateshead. Fran, our leader at the museum, told us the story and we acted it out with noises and actions. We even took part in a puppet show to bring the story to life! We then had a look at sources from the Victorian era and had to guess their uses.
Secondly, a Bridge Making workshop. We explored the museum, looking at a map of the Tyne and identifying the bridges. We looked at the engines inside the Swing Bridge and the High Level Bridge, both use hydraulic power! We then had a go and designing and making our own bridges.
