The boys in Ms Carragher`s and Ms Smith`s classes have been working very hard on their Titanic projects. We are fairly certain that a lot of the Mams, Dads, brothers, sisters, uncles and aunties have been working hard on the projects too!
The standard of the passenger liners sailing into our school is second to none.
All week, they have been sailing in, some replete with icebergs and oceans. One liner even has its very own Jack and Rose standing on deck!
The boys are so excited about their project. They know all about the ill-fated voyage in fine detail. The have followed her journey from the Harland and Wolff ship making factory in Belfast, through to Southampton and onwards across the vast ocean towards America in 1912.
They have learnt some interesting facts about the Titanic. It was lit by approximately 10,000 lightbulbs. There were four lifts on board. And two dogs were saved before the ship went down.
Some of the boys visited the Titanic Museum in Belfast over the mid term break and got even more information there. Sounds like a fun day out!
