On Tuesday 9th November Year 3 walked to Farncombe and Godalming to look at the particular places which celebrate the life of Jack Phillips, the local hero who was the telegraphist on the Titanic and went down with the ship whilst still sending out distress signals.
First, we walked to his memorial at the family grave in the shape of an iceberg in Deanery Rd and then went on down the hill to the larger memorial in Godalming next to the river Wey. Here we sketched the cloisters and read the memorial inscription. Next, we walked along the high street noticing the pub named after him and through the park next to the river created to remember him.
We also stopped to ask members of the public what they knew about him and we found out that most of the people visiting Godalming had heard of him. Finally, we returned to Farncombe stopping outside the place where he was born, now a pizza takeaway! and then returned to school.
