The Titanic comes to Greyfriars!
As part of our Time Travel topic, Blakeney class were invited on board the Titatic for their fateful voyage. Children were randomly allocated tickets and were directed to their cabins. There they discovered that not all passengers were considered equal. Children met their fellow passengers and checked out the accommodations before taking a walk around the ‘ship’ to make some comparisons. Once they had explored, they were invited to take a meal in either a third, second or first class restaurant. Some passengers were not impressed! Children then returned to their cabins and the events of the evening led to many children being left on a sinking ship! During this process, the children learned how the very strict class system gave some members of society a clear advantage even when it led to survival.
