Learning about the Titanic in Ms Forde’s First Class.

The topic for SESE in May was Transport. In History, we learned all about the Titanic. We did landscape artwork of the Titanic at night. We used black paper and chalk pastels.         Alice and Saoirse worked together to write a recount about the Titanic: The Titanic Work began on white star liner newest steam ship, Titanic. Titanic was the largest ship, they said. There was first class for rich people, second class for kind of rich people and third class for poor people. Passengers arrived excited! The Titanic had a swimming pool for swimming. And a ball room for dancing. It set sail from Southampton, Engand to New York on April 2nd 1912.

Some of them survived. It was very sad. A ship called the Carpathia rescued the people which survived on board. Then the ship went to New York. The...

Hot air balloons in Ms Forde’s First Class

The children have been busy learning about transport this term. For art, we worked in pairs to put paper mache on a balloon. It took a lot of hard work and patience to put PVA glue and paper on the balloons. We put one layer of ripped up newspaper and one layer of ripped up white paper. We left the paper mache to dry in a cool place. The next week, we made a plan with our partner about how we would decorate our balloons. When we were happy with our plan, we took turns to paint patterns, colours and shapes on the paper mache. It was hard work, but we were all very happy with the result. Did you know? The hot air balloon was invented by two French brothers – Joseph-Michel and Jacques-Etienne Montgolfer in 1783. The first people on a hot air balloon were animals! – A sheep, a rooster and a duck! Their view was probably not...
