On Tuesday we went on a long coach journey to Manchester’s Museum of Science and Industry.
When we arrived we met Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred, and they told us all about Pender – a steam engine! We learnt about putting coal in the fire box for fuel, boiling the water for steam and how the pistons go forwards and backwards inside the cylinders.
We wrote thank you letters to Engineer Eric and Forgetful Fred telling them all about the fun things we learned at the museum.
Thank you to all the parents and grandparents who came on the trip with us – we really couldn’t have gone without you and you were really helpful!
