This term we have been learning all about the Titanic. The children have worked really hard and have loved investigating and finding out about how the ship was built, the crew, the type of passengers on board and their different accommodation and entertainment, and the events that led up to the Titanic sinking.
The children were fantastic detectives, being able to look at old photos and drawing out lots of information. The passion the children showed when listening to some of the decisions that were made, such as the number of lifeboats, really fuelled their learning and they showed how much they had learnt when we went to Southampton’s Sea City Museum on Monday.
The staff at the museum were really impressed with the children’s knowledge and their ability to answer their questions as they went round the “Titanic story”. Some of the children were given the opportunity to dress up as some of the historical characters.
