Key Stage 2 history pupils can find out about Isambard Kingdom Brunel's iron sailing ship in this short video about Victorian Britain.
In this lesson idea, a primary class can discover how engineer Brunel revolutionised shipbuilding when he made his SS Great Britain from iron, instead of wood. Many people thought it would sink.
It was built as a luxury liner, with space for 1st and 2nd class passengers. Launched in 1843, SS Great Britain had a 92-year working career and reflected the rising demand for international travel.
