School pupils created a model of the Titanic to form the centrepiece of an exhibition they curated as part of a project on the 1912 disaster.

Youngsters at St Alban’s Catholic Primary School in Denaby used household goods, such as toilet roll holders for the iconic four funnels, to create their model.

They also dressed up as passengers from the fateful day and made some of the personal items, like coins, that passengers may have carried. Parents were invited to view the exhibition and have cucumber sandwiches with the children and staff.

One parent wrote in the school’s visitor book: “A brilliant exhibition, you can see all the fantastic work and effort the children have put in.”
