Titanic Terror!

We have been enjoying Kaspar Prince of Cats and we are particularly interested by the chapters set on the Titanic. This week we have looked at non-fiction books, videos, websites and newspapers to learn more about the Titanic disaster. We imagined what it would be like to board the Titanic and learnt about the different conditions for first, second and third class passengers. Our most fascinating lessons, however, were when we discovered what happened in the build up to the crash with the iceberg and what happened afterwards.

Towards the end of the week, the children of St. George's class became journalists. They gathered information, took eye witness statements and wrote a newspaper article about the Titanic sinking.

Here are some excellent examples (click on the pictures to make them bigger and easier to read):

Next week, we will be reading more of Kaspar Prince of Cats and learning more about the survivors of the Titanic disaster.
