Last week Year 2 had a super trip out to the Clifton Suspension Bridge.
Hedgehogs were lucky enough to visit the Visitors Centre. They learnt all about how the bridge was made so strong and about the history of the bridge. They also read some interesting stories about its famous engineer, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. Hedgehogs really impressed the staff with their knowledge of Brunel and great enthusiasm.
We bravely walked across the bridge, enjoying the magnificent view and ticking off the sights we could see, such as the Avon Gorge and even Ashton Gate football stadium! The children showed great courage and positivity when walking across the very high bridge- they impressed us all.
In preparation for Arts Week, we had a go at sketching the suspension bridge from the viewpoint by the Clifton Observatory. This will help us as the famous Bristol landmark year 2 have been given is the bridge. It is almost like Miss Timbrell and Miss Ball planned it!?
Despite our excitement and the cold, we were all extremely well behaved and respectful to the other members of the public who were visiting the bridge and Visitors Centre.
