BOB

The Railway Button Workshop

Pre Prep were thrilled to have a visit by  the Buttonhole Press today. They told the story of Bob - The Railway Button; and ran a craft workshop where they each child made a clock. The boys thoroughly enjoyed it.

Bob is a shiny, silver button on a steam train guard's jacket. Bob is forced to adapt as the railways are modernised.

Through Bob's story we discover how steam engines work and why it was important for steam trains to be on time! We make button clocks to help learn to tell the time!
