Workshop: Travelling on the Railway

Number of Students:
Up to 35
1 hour
Number of adults:

Taking inspiration from the book ‘Faster, Faster Little Red Train!’ By Benedict Blathwayt, we take a playful approach to exploring the station and taking the train.

We share the story together and then take part in a carousel of activities as smaller groups.

  • Sequencing and story maps – what happened in the story? Can you remember what happens next?
  • Role play buying a ticket, having a snack and getting to the correct platform, whilst exploring these areas of North Road Station.
  • Exploring and finding key features on our old engines and carriages, dressing up and handling objects.

This workshop was developed with the early learning goals in mind.
