This is a history led project covering the sinking of RMS Titanic. We are expecting the children to use their Emotional Intelligence and become immersed in the experiences of those who really sailed upon her.
We are really proud of the way the children took on their roles with maturity. They were given the name of a passenger or crew member before boarding the ship. They listened to the events as they unfolded, scrambling to lifeboats or pacing the decks with panic and desperation. Some children were part of family groups. As they were loaded into lifeboats, Fathers and Sons waved off Mothers and children. They observed the maritime rule of ‘women and children first’. Until, at 2.20am, the Titanic sunk. Those who had remained onboard thrashed about in the ocean, they screamed and called out for someone to save. Then slowly but surely the noise reduced to silence. At this point those who had made it onto a lifeboat realised what they had witnessed and shock was evident on their faces.
Over the next few weeks we will be looking at passengers lives and creating diary entries of the disaster. We will also be looking at the impacts that the sinking had on safety rules and procedures at sea.
Some important weekly information:
- Music – Tuesday mornings.
- PE – Tuesday afternoon and Friday mornings. (Please ensure your child’s named PE kit is in school)
- Library – Friday
