If we were at school this week, we would research James Watt, Richard Trevithick, Isambard Kingdom Brunel, William Hedley, Stephenson’s Rocket, Thomas Savery. You will need to do this yourself and  make notes on their discovery, inventions and the impact this had on the railways we know today. Write a couple of paragraphs explaining who you think is the ‘father of the railway’. Who was the one who made the biggest impact? Who officially invented the trains? Which of these men were needed most? Come up with your own ideas and opinions on this.

 

Discuss with your adults at home – who is that father of the railway?

 

Use the links below to help with your research and to help you formulate your opinion.
