What does it mean? 

Can you think of synonyms and antonyms? 

What word class does it belong to: adjectives, verbs, nouns or adverbs? 

How many syllables does the word have? 

Can you include it in a sentence? Remember capital letters and punctuation.

The Titanic 

Read the text all about the Titanic! The text has been spilt into different subheadings to make it easier to find information. Answer the questions on the sheet. It might be helpful to underline key words in the questions to remind you of what to look for.

11:30 - 12:30 - English

You are going to write some sentences for each section of your letter, using yesterday’s plan to help you.  

  • Introduction 

  • Paragraph 1 – why you ran away 

  • Paragraph 2 – how you are doing and where you’re living 

  • Paragraph3 -  your exciting news – you won a talent contest 

  • Close 

Use the Sentence Stems (in Learning Resources) to help you. Remember, you will be writing an informal letter to a friend, so when you read your sentences back, they should sound chatty and friendly – imagine how you might talk to a friend. 


12:30 - 13:30 - Lunch Time


Afternoon - Wider Curriculum


In Christianity, Christians believe that Jesus’ words and actions show them how to live. These are called the Beatitudes – Matthew (5:3-15).  


Watch this hyper link Sermon on the Mount. A sermon is a bit like a lesson. Jesus used this sermon to teach and guide his followers. 


Read the Beatitudes. They have been re-written in a simple, clear way to help us understand what they mean. 


  1. Talk to someone else about what each Beatitude might mean. Freeze frame or draw an image to show how a Christian child might carry out that action in their daily lives.  


  1. Re-read the Ten Commandments from last week. Compare them to the Beatitudes. Answer these questions in your book, using full sentences: 

  • How are the Ten Commandments and Beatitudes similar and different? 

  • Why do you think they mention God so much in both sets of rules? 

  • Which of the Beatitudes do you think is most important? Why?
