Some of our Year 8 students were rewarded for their excellent effort and achievement in History with a trip to the Merseyside Maritime Museum.
Our students explored the interactive displays which covered important ships including the RMS Titanic; the largest ship afloat until it struck an iceberg in 1912. Plus the RMS Lusitania, a British liner sunk by a German U-boat in 1915, helping to change American opinion against Germany.
Other displays covered slavery and smuggling, which played a huge part in maritime history.
Additionally, the students also took part in an interactive experience. They each played a different character, reliving the experience of emigrating to America through the Liverpool docks.
The head of education congratulated our students for being “friendly, polite and all willing to join in and share thoughts and ideas…exactly what we want!”.
