Rosie Revere, Engineer (on-site tour)
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 study of 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 Rosie Revere themed guided tour around 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. This guided tour can also be combined with one of our other Key Stage 1 workshops.
The Rosie Revere learning sequence can be purchased from The Literacy Tree website
