9th November Year 2 Titanic Day
As part of our topic on The Titanic, Year 2 children came to school today dressed as passengers on the 'Unsinkable Ship'. Their learning was enriched by spending the day on board.
The Captain welcomed all the passengers, then the children spent the day in 1st or 2nd Class, finding out about life at sea.
"I was the crew, serving people and seeing if they were alright. There were no lights on, someone said 'Iceberg ahead' but the Captain didn't listen, he was doing important stuff" (Jude)
"The Titanic sank to the bottom of the ocean because it hit an iceberg. Third class people had to go on the poop deck, it was small. In 1st Class, they had lemonade, they pretended it was champagne!" (Mercedes)
"I was lucky, I was in First Class. In the restaurant we got lemonade and a biscuit, we would have fruit too. In 3rd class they had bunk beds so they could get more passengers in. The beds were harder than in 1st class but they were still nicer than the beds they had at home"(Poppy)
"In First Class there was a heated swimming pool, Turkish bath, a gymnasium, a squash court, a library and a ballroom. We had proper music to dance to in 1st Class!" (Rees)
