A3 paper

Post-it notes

Resources

What might a  passenger terminal look alike for a futuristic mode of transport? What key elements would be the same as Brunel’s time? What would be different? Why? Consider technology but also the social context of aesthetics etc.

Team-based approach to the issue collectively decided upon by the class.

Produce an A3 poster illustrating their designs. Discuss the need for clear explanations so that others could work from your plans.

Create a class display for children to circulate around and make constructive comments on post-it notes. Children then return to their design and make adjustments as advised / clarify any issues which others were not sure of.

Introduce problem for which solutions are to be mooted. e.g. Bristol’s traffic problems – ‘What would you design if you were Brunel?’ / How could you get across the gorge if the bridge wasn’t there? / Rolls Royce competition – design a means to cross the Atlantic Ocean.

What could be improved about the transport system in Britain / Bristol? Consider both public transport and private transport with its related issue of parking, pollution and congestion. What would you like to be able to achieve on transport / what places should be accessible? Children to come up with ideals. Teacher to model how to phrase ideas as though part of a manifesto / proposal to send to investors. What persuasive devices would Brunel have had to use?

How would you solve a modern-day transport issue if you were Brunel?
