We were learning about the Titanic. We built boats out of tin foil, lollipop sticks and sellotape to see would they float. We put the boats in a basin of water. We put biscuits on them to see how much weight the boat could carry. When we put too many biscuits on the boat it sank. Some managed to stay up but others sank.
We had great fun.
