Rosie Revere, Engineer - KS1
Tower Bridge has joined forces with the team at The Literacy Tree to create this 3-week literacy sequence for Year 2s,around Andrea Beatty’s Rosie Revere, Engineer, incorporating a visit to Tower Bridge with associated preparatory and follow-up work.
Following the triumphs,failures and – most importantly of all – perseverance of budding engineer Rosie, pupils undertake a varied range of tasks exercising both their Literacy and Design & Technology skills, culminating in a visit to Tower Bridge undertaking a mission set by Rosie herself, to create a leaflet all about London’s defining landmark.
We offer a facilitated visit to Tower Bridge to help pupils to complete their mission, though the mission can also be completed through a self-guided visit, using our specially-designed resources.
