A Mini Project About … BOAT JOURNEYS!
From Monday 13th July, our children in school will be spending the fortnight learning about Boat Journeys and so we would also like our home learners to discover the same interesting facts. Here are a list of lesson ideas for different subjects within the curriculum. Choose one or two a day and see what you can discover, create and learn. This work will be completed over the next two weeks in school, so please take your time and do not feel that you have to complete all of it at home, as we know you are also accessing other work through White Rose Maths and BBC Bitesize. Please send us examples of your amazing work. We would love to have a 'Boat Journeys Gallery' on our class page. Remember that most of the worksheets do not need printing - you can read them online and then write on your own paper or answer any questions verbally.
Narrative Writing Ideas
These ideas are related to our text for the topic 'The Legend of the Crab Phare', which can be accessed through either of these links:
Complete the narrative tasks listed below, which can also be found on this narrative ideas sheet:
Have a go at writing these songs and poems in your neatest handwriting, remembering to use the correction letter formation and joins that you have been taught in school.
As part of our Boat Journeys topic, we would like you to learn about Grace Darling and why she is an important person in British history; The Titanic and the story behind the famous sinking of the ship and also discover more about the RNLI and find out about the history of the organisation.
Here are a list of learning ideas for each of these:
KEY QUESTIONS: Who was Grace Darling? Where did she live? What was her life like? Why did she become famous?
KEY QUESTIONS: What do we mean by a ship’s ‘maiden voyage’? Why are ships traditionally referred to as ‘she’? What was life like on-board Titanic? Was it the same for all passengers? Why did so many people lose their lives?
KEY QUESTIONS: What does RNLI stand for? Why are the RNLI important? What do the RNLI do? How do lifeboats work?
