Trains, Tyres and Tunnels

The children were playing with the train set in the garden when one of the boys exclaimed that he had been on a train from Glasgow to London Euston and he was the engine. Other children joined on the train as carriages and travelled round the garden but they wanted to make their train journey more realistic. “We want a tunnel!” We all planned how we could make a tunnel from the new tyres that had just arrived in the garden. Val and Jaweria got to work digging the tyres into the garden to make our lovely new tunnel feature and off went the train again. All aboard!
