Pupils at Gigha Primary spent last term learning about RMS Titanic. The culmination of this busy term was the re-creation of a First Class Afternoon Tea Party for parents, family and members of the community. Pupils showed visitors around the displays of their work, recounted the story of the Titanic and performed pieces of music to the audience. An entertaining and rewarding afternoon was had by all!
£55 was raised for the RNLI and pupils visited the RNLI Campbeltown station to present a cheque. They were given a fantastic tour of the station and boats, thank you very much to the crew who gave up their time to show us around.
As part of their Expressive Arts they created an Art Gallery using wax and watercolour techniques, used role play to explore Edwardian manners and etiquette as well as created 3D clay models with box surrounds. The pupils were fascinated by fashion and food on the Titanic so as part of Technology they researched fabrics of the period and dressed up as well as baking bread and cakes for a tea party. Pupils learnt about forces in Science especially water resistance and investigated the design of boat hulls.
