This week’s homework is creative and is due on Thursday 17th May.

This half term, our topic is “inventions that changed the world”. So far, we have looked at the telephone, invented by Alexander Graham Bell, and bridges designed by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

 Isambard Kingdom Brunel was a famous engineer. He built bridges, tunnels, railways, docks and ships. Many of the works Isambard created and designed pushed the boundaries of what people were used to.

Your creative homework is to design a new item for Isambard to build. You can choose to design a bridge, a tunnel, a railway, a steam engine or an invention of your choice. Remember, Isambard pushed the boundaries of what we already know – try to make yours different to the items we already use.
