Titanic

Standard

Sorry I’ve been away for a while! I’ve just gone back to work after maternity leave and I have felt exhausted after work, children etc. I’ve only felt like vegetating after the girls go to sleep!

Anyway, in my year 8 history class, I have been working on the Titanic topic with a student I work one-to-one with. He has a few learning difficulties (severe dyslexia and dyspraxia) and I felt lap booking would work really well!

We learned about the Titanic through lots of discussion together. He did his own research at home and we created mini books on different topics (the band, first class vs third class, why the body count and passenger list was not accurate, statistics etc). Then we created a model of the Titanic using paper mâché. Here is a step by step photo log of what we did!
