Today we are going to write our long anticipated recount of being a lucky passenger on board one of the 20 lifeboats from the Titanic.
Take a look at the PowerPoint and resources to remind yourself of the key events told by Daisy.
Have your planning sheet in front of you. If you have lost yours...or the dog has eaten it (Poppy's dog does that!) a copy is in last week's plans.
Remember to watch the clips that are on the topic page for this week too.
Magpie ideas from everywhere - all good writers do that.
Today we are going to enjoy chapter 9 of our book. At the end of the previous chapter, Daisy and her fellow passengers had spent a night freezing in the lifeboats and Daisy has been greeted by the most welcoming sight - The Carpathia ship.
Today we are going to find out more about one British Titanic survivor. Her name was Eva Hart. Eva was seven years old when she set out on the maiden voyage of the Titanic. She tells a really fascinating story of her trip.
Your challenge is to become the reporter who is interviewing Eva Hart.
Imagine YOU are the one asking her the questions. (The interviews happened 75 years after the Titanic disaster.)
2. Jot your questions on your reporter's pad and then her answers.
There are lots of sources for you to dip into. Use all or some of these.
Tomorrow we would like you to either write your interview with Eva Hart up as a mini report or become Eva Hart and write to the children at Burton Primary School introducing yourself and telling them about being a passenger on the ship.
Today's lesson leads on from yesterday. We had a fascinating afternoon learning about Eva Hart and found out many interesting facts and some found it hard to narrow down the questions and answers they most liked.
It was especially fascinating to hear in her account of the night the Titanic sank.
Now you have all that information we would like you to choose one of three challenges. We have widened the ideas after talking to our key worker children as they had ideas about what they wanted to do today.
1. Write a short report/biography of Eva Hart as we did for Captain Edward J. Smith. This could be completed on j2e.
2. Write a letter as Eva Hart to school children - could be our school telling them about the Titanic. There is letter style paper on j2e or you could use the paper we have used in previous lessons.
3. Create a pictorial story board of part of her time on the Titanic. It could be the time leading up to the sinking or of the night of the event or even later events that you want to draw. Template below.
