Year 2 Titanic Trip
Year 2 pupils enjoyed their trip to the Titanic exhibition in the SeaCity Museum in Southampton. They toured the museum and learnt about life on-board for different classes of passengers, the menus, the layout of the ship and the lifeboat arrangements. The children were interested in the number of crew who came from Southampton and the tragedy of how few returned.
The museum staff led workshops which included a floating and sinking activity, lifeboat decisions, dressing up as crew and passengers, experiencing different smells from parts of the ship and handling replica exhibits. The staff were very impressed by the knowledge levels of the children and how keen they were to learn more and make the most of every activity.
