Olive class have been learning about London and its landmarks in class. Our trip to Tower Bridge fit in really well with our topic of London. We started the trip with a walk along the River Thames from London Bridge to Tower Bridge. We saw London Bridge, the Shard, St Pauls Cathedral and the Tower of London. We even stopped with our sketch books to draw some of the sights.
The workshop at Tower Bridge started with a brief history of the bridge and how it has changed/developed over the years. We learnt about some of the ways London has changed and even saw some old machinery. Next we learnt about the jumping bus story and re-enacted using props. To end the day we used the stop motion app on iPads to create mini movies, telling the jumping bus story.
