PUPILS from Fordingbridge Junior School were transported back in time for an immersive experience to mark Titanic Day.

Year 4 pupils from Fordingbridge Junior School attended school in authentic period costumes on Thursday, April 18.

They were met by the Captain, who duly stamped their tickets and assigned them to their designated quarters.

From the decadence of First Class to the bowels of the Titanic in Third, children got themselves involved in the immersive day straight away.

Hard decisions were made, from deciding what to pack for the voyage in their one suitcase to choosing from their respective menus, children made the most of the special day as they brought history to life.

The afternoon found them sampling the ‘grilled hams’ from First Class, scones from Second Class and oatmeal porridge from Third.

This was followed by some top-quality entertainment as the children participated in games such as skittles and draughts, both of which were played by passengers on the Titanic.
