Year 1

Highlight of the week

This week for homework we made Titanic dioramas! We have been really enjoying our learning linked to the Titianic and our models show some of the things we have learnt about including the boiler room, the different types of bedroom and the ship itself in the water. 

We also used this as an opportunity to share some of our learning with year 4 when they come to share their stories with us. We showed them our models and told them all about the Titanic; what is was, where it was going and what happened to it.
