A 'Titanic' Science Week

They met characters who boarded the ship and lessons involved a variety of scientific enquiry. The children: used pulleys for lifting heavy materials; investigated heat transfer and used morse code and rockets for distress signals.

Science Team Leader, Kirstin Swanson commented, ‘It really was fantastic to see all the children excited about Science through this compelling context.  The children really enjoyed this topic and we have had so many positive comments from parents.”

Cici in Year 3 said “We used data loggers to investigate the heat loss in icy water just like it would have been in the sea with the Titanic – I found it amazing!”

Henry from Year 5 added “I really like learning about life on the Titanic, an enormous ship, twice the length of our field.  Did you know there were three classes of passengers?  I would have liked to have seen the Titanic if it hadn’t sunk!”
