World Around Us Topic - Titanic 

During Term 2, we would be learning about the Titanic as part of our World Around Us studies.  Unfortunately, we are unable to do this because of lockdown.  However, I have provided suggested topic-related activities and attached some links below to websites which I think you might find useful if you want to carry out some learning of your own based on our topic.  *Please note, these activities are NOT compulsory. 

I would love to see some pictures of your topic studies; please feel free to email those to me. 

  1. Research ‘Samson and Goliath.’  Draw up a timeline of the building of Titanic.
