Over the past few weeks, the children in 2nd and 3rd class have been learning about the “Titanic”.  The children completed a mini-project and learned lots of interesting facts and figures about this tragedy, which happened 100 years ago.  Have a look at some of our pictures!

The children learned about the various classes that the passengers were divided into.  Did you know that the 3rd class passengers were not allowed onto the 1st or 2nd class deck?  We also looked at pictures of some of the features of this magnificent ship…

Some of the children pretended to be reporters and wrote newspaper reports about the day the Titanic first set sail.  We tried to make the newspapers look as genuine as possible by tea-staining them and tearing the paper around the edges to look like they were 100 years old!

Other children drew pictures of the Titanic…

We are looking forward to a visit to the library on Tuesday, 29th May to listen to a talk from a local historian, all about the Titanic!

One Response to Titanic

    They look great. a fascinating topic particularly as there is so much about it in the media at the moment with the 100th year anniversary. Mind you, I did see something about a tweet that someone had tweeted that they weren’t sure if the Titantic sinking actually happened or was just a film so perhaps the saturation of the media on this topic isn’t necessarily a good thing!
