The Dolphin Blog the News team at Old Moat Primary have been exploring the Titanic Disaster. Bethany the story-writer has written a lovely piece that takes us aboard the ship on that fateful voyage. This is a lightly-edited version of the original story, accompanied by Ryan’s Photopeach slideshow.
One loud, noisy morning everyone was screaming and shouting on the harbour. The Titanic – the largest, most grand ship ever made by man was about to launch. Everyone was waving to their friends and relatives with the exception of one girl. Lucy Williams was walking across the foot-bridge feeling upset at having nobody to wave her off.
”Hello and welcome aboard the Titanic. Are you 1st, 2nd, or 3rd class and have you got your ticket? “asked the ticket man standing at the door of the ship.
“Well I’m 1st class and here is my ticket,” explained Lucy.
When she got aboard she was offered a cup of tea that she did not really want but she drank it anyway. When she arrived in the 1st class cabin she was impressed with the clean, luxurious room. That afternoon she had dinner with Polly from a neighbouring cabin. Her friend was in second class and called Kasey and she had dinner next to her husband max. Later she had tea and went to her cabin and went to bed.
The next day she walked all over the Titanic and she was even more impressed. She saw her friend below her “Hi Kasey where`s max,”she shouted “he’s in a bar see you later!” she shouted back. Polly came over and told her to have a walk with her. That night she missed her friend and then she went to sleep.
The next day, Lucy went and saw max and Kasey and she had breakfast with them. Then she went and read a book in the library that night she had a long day so she dozed off.
“BANG BANG BANG!!! Get your life jackets on! Wake up! Quickly! Go to the deck and wait there!” shouted a crew member. Polly, Lucy, Max and Kasey had woken up with a start and as soon as the words had sunk in, they did as they were asked. They arrived on deck, tired and confused.
”Why are we here Max? I’m tired. What’s happening? “asked Kasey. Polly and Lucy were scared too and were told them about the horrific iceberg that was going to sink the unsinkable. Five minutes later the lifeboat was in the water with Max, Polly, Lucy and Kasey all safely aboard.
As they watched the Titanic sinking they all cried. Finally they were picked up by the Carpathia and arrived later in New York where they lived happily but never to forget what had happened to them on the Titantic.
