This week we are going to be learning all about the history of trains and how they have changed over time.

Look at the PowerPoint below to find out how trains were invented, who invented the different types of train and how they are different today to in the past. 


Then complete the traffic survey activity below. Is Beaminster busier in the mornings or the afternoons? Count the different vehicles and record them in the tally chart and then answer the questions. 


You could also complete the old/new trains sorting activity below. Why did you sort them in that way? How are they similar and how are they different? Perhaps you could write a couple of sentences to describe how they have changed over time.
