Year 2 Titanic Day

This half term the children in year 2 have been learning about the Titanic.  They have explored why the ship sank, why more people were not saved and how many people sadly died.  They have also found out what lessons were learned and how things have changed today.

To celebrate the topic the children had a Titanic day.  The children chose to dress as either a First Class or a Third Class passenger and they were allocated name labels and tickets on arrival.  The year one children waved them all off as they entered the ‘mighty ship’.  The classrooms were divided into first class and third class and the children experienced a range of activities as part of the day.  These included dining and leisure activities suitable to the time.  A great hit was the dancing!
