Discovering Together

What is an engineer?

This week, Amazon Class have started to explore their new topic for this term- ‘If you were an engineer what would you do?’ We asked the children what they think an engineer is and what sorts of things do they do. I set the children a mini challenge to discuss this question with their grown-ups at home too.

The children had lots of different initial perceptions of an engineer, as you can see pictured above!

We can’t wait to get stuck into this topic during Term 3, when we shall be learning about all the different roles engineers can have, the skills they need, the processes they follow, together with exploring early inventions from the past. We shall also be taking part in the ’If you were an engineer’ competition in partnership with UWE Bristol. More info to follow!
