This week

Thank you to Martha H and Mollie for sharing your love of the 'Titanic'. Our trip to the Sea City museum was great and helped us to really get to grips with this tragic story. We conducted a simple science experiment to help us understand how the 'Titanic' sank; experimented with morse code messages and thought really carefully about who would 'earn' a place on one of the lifeboats. Perhaps more poignantly though, we found out about the members of the crew and their fascinating stories.
