Spring 1- SOS Titanic
This half term we will be journeying through the Atlantic Ocean on the Titanic's maiden voyage.
As a year group we will be analysing sources to determine why historians find them so useful. Taking a closer look at why the Titanic sank, we will be evaluating the structure and events which led up to the ocean liner sinking.
We will be looking at eye witness accounts to immerse ourselves into the lives of the passengers and creating arguments as to what could have been done to save more lives.
