The Year 2 children have been enthralled by their 'Fire and Ice’ topic. They were fascinated when they visited the SeaCity Museum in Southampton, learning about the story of the Titanic. The children experienced an amazing tour of the exhibition with plenty of hands-on activities, including steering the ship, putting coal in the furnace and tapping out a message in Morse code.
During the workshop they had the opportunity to learn about real-life passengers aboard the ship, why the ship sank so fast and how tricky it was to decide who should get a seat in a lifeboat.
The children came back to school full of knowledge which has inspired some emotive writing.
