Inventors & Inventions

England, Scotland, Wales

Inventors and your inventions,
You made something new.
You made our lives easier,
Now we can invent too!

It took Bell to make the telephone ring, and Edison to light our way. George Pulman made the sleeping car for railroad trips at night, while Lou Waterman made the fountain pen so everyone could write.

We learn of the wonderful inventors and inventions throughout history, along with some of the more recent inventions in our current modern world! There are so many things around us that we take for granted but make our lifestyle possible. For instance, could you imagine living a day without using your computer or not having access to a mobile phone? 

Come with us as we journey through One Day’s exciting inventor’s time machine, for a look at what great inventions there have been, what types of people inventors are, and even what makes someone ‘inventive’! Who knows what you might come up with?!

"The drama event went well despite some of the Year 5's from the visiting school being a little reticent at first! All of them enjoyed performing and it was nice to see the children who don't normally participate being given the confidence to join in and perform. The drama leader worked very hard, she was great with the children and had high expectations of behaviour and performance skills. Overall, the children enjoyed the day and the teacher from the middle school who hadn't heard of the company before was very impressed."
