Hope you are all well. Wasn’t it hot yesterday? Seems it will be another hot day today. We hope you are having lots of fun in the sun.
Here are today’s tasks:
Think about these two subjects in relation to Titanic.
For each subject, write two adjectives, three verbs and two nouns, which link tothese topics, e.g. for Titanic you may use:
Adjectives: magnificent, doomed
Verbs: sailing, colliding,sinking
Nouns: vessel, ship
Once you have chosen your nouns, adjectives and verbs, use these to create a ‘diamante poem’.
Diamante poems use this structure:
Verb, Verb, Verb
Noun, Noun, Noun, Noun
Verb, Verb, Verb,
The words in green will be the ones you generated for Titanic and the word in red will be the ones you generated for passengers.
A completed example may look like this:
Sailing, Colliding, Sinking
Vessel, Ship, Men, Women
Gazing, Exploring, Searching,

Spelling – Visit www.spellingframe.co.uk. Choose one of the activities for homophones (numbers 49 to 52 – we have covered number 48).
Alternatively, here is a homophones wordsearch (there aren’t many words on it, however – but do make sure you understand in what context each of these words would be used):
Too easy? Looking for more challenge? Do you know in what context these homophones are used? Can you use them in a sentence? Feel free to consult a dictionary (or adult!) if you need one. I have chosen a mixture of easier and more challenging words.
