The sinking of the Titanic

In our first term in Orchard our topic will be exploring an event within living memory – the sinking of the Titanic. RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean in 1912 after the ship struck an iceberg during her maiden voyage from Southampton to New York City. We will be using our enquiry approach to investigate clues, ask questions and eventually reach a hypothesis. Particularly we will be discussing the different classes within the passengers on board the Titanic and how this affected them.
