As part of their studies into the 19th century, Y3 went to the local museum today. Amongst all of the exhibits relating to the textile industry, there was a temporary exhibition of bicycles - from Penny Farthings to modern carbon fibre mounts and everything in between. The children sketched bikes in as much detail as possible. Back at school this afternoon they were given wooden wheels, matchsticks and wire, with which to create a sculpture! Some didn't turn out too badly though I'm not sure I'd want to ride full-sized versions!
