In Year 6 we have started our topic of the World War by looking at the Titanic, which set sail two years prior to that. Through the prism of the Titanic we are able to look at social class in the 1910s, which we will be able to further examine when we look at the World Wars. We have also linked to geography by looking at where the Titanic was built (Belfast).
