Day Ten - 3rd April



Read chapter eight.  In this chapter, Johnny realises that the collision with the iceberg is more serious that they first thought! He goes to check on Elizabeth and Kaspar. Mr Stanton makes the rest of them leave for the Boat Deck without taking anything with them – including Kaspar. Elizabeth is upset at not being able to rescue Kaspar so Johnny goes back to fetch him. He hides Kaspar in a blanket and Mrs Stanton goes with Kaspar and Elizabeth on a life boat to safety. Mr Stanton and Johnny help the other women and children climb into the life boats while the boat begins to sink…
