On Friday 22nd November, Year 3, clutching their first or third class tickets, embarked on a voyage across the Atlantic Ocean in the world's most luxurious ship on her maiden voyage. Each classroom became the lounge areas for a different class of passenger, however, unlike the ill-fated Titanic, our voyage was successful.
The day began with time to write postcards home followed by instruction in the use of Morse code from our very own Jack Phillips. To fill the long days at sea, the children played deck and parlour games and learnt to dance in a class-appropriate manner (waltz or an Irish jig).
The day culminated in the passengers taking afternoon tea. First class were treated to china tea cups, table cloths and scones & jam, whereas, third class enjoyed cabin biscuits and plain cake.
