Great Western’s children’s page

Train operator GWR has launched an #EnterTrainment package to help home-schooling parents keep their children entertained and educated.

Inspiring children to learn at home, the website consists of interactive, documentary videos about the history of the railway and the South West; downloadable colouring sheets from GWR’s Iron Horses of the West book; and a social media build-a-train competition, with further content due to come online soon including activity sheets with word searches, quizzes and more.

GWR’s head of communications Dan Panes explains: “We’re accustomed to having to help keep children occupied while travelling on our trains. So, while our front-line staff continue to keep essential workers travelling, we have turned our hand to helping keep you #EnterTrained at home.”

There is a series of ‘Walk the Line’ documentaries about the history of the iconic GWR including a 2015 film where Isambard Kingdom, Brunel’s great-great-great grandson, follows in his ancestor’s footsteps from Bristol to London.  Nine short ‘Walk The Line’ videos are available with a series of fun questions for children to answer.

Following Government advice against all non-essential travel, GWR is operating a reduced timetable.
