The youngsters have been looking at how and who built the liner.

Before heading off to half-term, youngsters began to learn more about the first, second and third class passengers.

Children enjoyed an afternoon tea along with learning how to dance the Irish Jig, Waltz and Charleston from Louise and Paul Tombleson.

They have also designed and constructed cake stands as part of the project, which encompasses all of the curriculum. Teacher Kate Kendal said: “The children absolutely love the dancing and picked it up really quickly.

“We have an immersive curriculum at the school.

“One of the Year 6 classrooms has been decorated as a ship yard while the other is a first class cabin.

“We believe by immersing children in a topic, they develop learning from experience.”
