Good morning Year 5,
Did you see the downpour we had yesterday? We had just got back from a walk when it started – a very lucky escape. Hope you’re all keeping well. It’s lovely to hear from you, so do keep in touch 😊.
Here are your tasks for today:
Watch this clip of passengers boarding the ship, taken from the 1997 film Titanic:
Watch again – pausing at key points as you watch, and jot down words or phrases for the things you can see and hear in the clip, such as: cars arriving, crowds of people, third-class passengers having a health inspection and the ship’s horn.
Now go back and improve your words and phrases for example, ‘cars arriving’ may become ‘luxurious cars arrived on the dock’ and ‘crowds of people’ may become ‘the crowds of people were like a swarm of ants’.
You may want to use www.wordhippo.com to improve your vocabulary.
Once you have improved your sentences, have a go at writing this scene in narrative form. Imagine this scene is for a new opening of a story about Titanic. Write the opening to the story retelling this scene. Don’t forget to include the words and phrases you have written.
You can select whether your opening is written in first person, ‘As I arrived, I saw Titanic for this first time’ or third person ‘As Character name (you choose your character) arrived, she/he saw Titanic for the first time.’
Make sure you continue to proof-read your work as you write, checking for spelling and
We are continuing with our work on fractions today. Please watch the video and complete the activity below.
Have another look back to Monday’s page and choose a different activity to complete that’s linked to our ‘Houses’ theme.
We hope you have a great day,
Mrs Canipa and Miss Wood
