Brunel in Cornwall (Key Stage 1-2)

Our picture pack and board game provide a great introduction to the impact Isambard Kingdom Brunel’s railway had on Cornwall.

The picture pack is filled with photographs and illustrations related to Brunel and the railway in Cornwall. It is complemented by a fun and inspiring board game based upon the history of Brunel’s railway, which helps children understand its significance.

This pack is useful for cross-curricular study and can be used to incorporate science, geography and design.

The loans pack is free to borrow, but needs to be collected from and returned to Kresen Kernow. If you’re interested in borrowing the pack, or have any questions, please contact our Learning Lead or email them at kresenkernow@cornwall.gov.uk.

At present we don’t offer a Brunel-themed outreach workshop or visit, although we may be able to offer a railway-themed local history visit.
