We have loved learning all about Brunel and all of his inventions. Did you know he built the Clifton Suspension Bridge…and that he has the same birthday as Miss Perry??!
We now know that…
- The bridge was opened in 1864.
- There are 4200 chain links on the bridge.
- The bridge is 214 metres wides and 26 metres high.
In teams we had the challenge of building a suspension bridge. Once we knew the trick it was easy!
