Titanic Trip

On Thursday, Year 6 went on a visit to the Time and Tide Museum in Great Yarmouth. We had a wonderful time learning about life on the Titanic. Here are some photos of the day.

Outdoor Learning Day

Here are some photos from our Year 6 Outdoor Classroom Day which we did earlier in the month. We tried lots of different activities and enjoyed making some shelters.

Titanic poems

Captain: Do you know why we’re sinking?

Owner: Do you know why the steel was so weak?

Captain: You told me it was unsinkable.

Owner: You told me that a piece of ice had fallen on the deck.

Captain: You should’ve used better steel.

Owner: You should’ve gone straight ahead.

Captain: Why did you build her so badly?

Owner: Why did you captain her so badly?

Captain: I blame you for this.

Owner: I blame you for this.

Captain: We have passengers to save.

Owner: We have passengers to save.

Father: You have to get in a lifeboat now!

Daughter: I don’t want to leave you.

Father: This is the last boat. Please, I beg you, get in.

Daughter: I’d rather die than part from you.

Father: The ship is filling up with freezing cold water. It will be gone in a few minutes.

Daughter: At least the cold will numb my heartache!

Father: Go. The lights have gone out. It’s pitch black. Hold my hand and we’ll find a boat.

Daughter: Please father, I don’t want to go by myself.

Father: There’s no room for me. I’ll be fine. I can swim.

Daughter: If I go, do you promise that you’ll survive?

Father: I promise.

What if?

We have been writing poems about the Titanic based on the wonderful book Berth, Voices of the Titanic by Natalie Scott.

Frederick Fleet, crew

What if we had set sail a day later?

What if we had had a different destination?

What if the sea had been slightly rougher?

What if there had been enough lifeboats?

What if the water had been warmer?

What if all the passengers had been treated equally?

What if we hadn’t lost the key to the binocular cupboard?

What if I had seen the iceberg ten seconds earlier?

What if I had seen the iceberg ten seconds later?

What if there hadn’t been an iceberg?

What if I had worn my lucky socks?

What if I’d had tea instead of coffee?

What if there had been someone else on look out?

What if there had been someone else on look out?

Third Class Passenger

What if my life had mattered?

What if we had been treated like humans?

What if we hadn’t been threatened by the crew?

What if I’d been richer?

What if I had gone on another voyage?

What if the key to the cupboard had been found?

What if the water wasn’t so cold?

What if I was a child?

What if the lifeboats had come back?

What if my tears had persuaded the crew

What if I had worn different shoes?

What if I hadn’t been on the boat?

What if I hadn’t been on the boat?

What if I had used better steel?

What if I had had the key to the binoculars cupboard?

What if we had set sail earlier?

What if we had set sail later?

What if I’d picked a  better captain?

What if we’d had more lifeboats?

What if we’d hit the iceberg head on instead?

What if we had gone at twenty knots instead?

What if we had listened to the warnings?

What if I had worn my bow tie?

What if I hadn’t built the Titanic?

What if I hadn’t built the Titanic?

What if I was a child?

What if I could have travelled First Class?

What if the ocean was rougher?

What if they saw the iceberg?

What if the iceberg was larger?

What if the iceberg was smaller?

What if there was no iceberg?

What if they had listened to my pleas?

What if there were less people on the ship?

What if I had had something else to eat?

What if I was wearing a different suit?

What if I didn’t even get on the ship?

What if I didn’t even get on the ship?

Isn’t it great? by Andrew

Isn’t it great when you wake up in the morning and it’s the summer holidays?

Isn’t it great when a motorbike comes past and you can smell the diesel?

Isn’t it great when you realise it’s Christmas?

Isn’t it great when you come home from school and you’re having something nice for dinner?

Isn’t it great when you get to see a football game?

Ins’t it great when you get a computer game that has only came out today?

Isn’t it great when you score the winning goal for your team?

Isn’t it great when its a sunny day?

Isn’t great when your favourite song comes on?

Isn’t it great when your pet listens to you?

Isn’t it great when you land the water bottle flip on the cap?
