Year 2 visit the National Railway Museum

Michael Sheerin

The children in Year 2 have been thinking about the following question.

“How did George Stephenson change lives?”

It wasn’t long before they discovered that George Stephenson was an inventor and of course had invented “The Rocket” the very first steam train. So where better to go to find out more than a trip the National Railway Museum in York.

At the museum the children got to see close up a replica of George Stephenson’s “Rocket”. We explored other famous engines on show, including the Mallard, the Japanese “Bullet”, the Flying Scotsman and a Eurostar train. We compared what it was like to be a first and second class passenger, and discovered how the railway is use for transporting goods as well as people. The post train was very interesting. It’s hard to imagine life before the railways and trains. George Stephenson’s invention has certainly change lives in a big way!

Below is a sample of writing from the children about the visit.
