Watch the animation video of the Little Boat. There are no words to go with the video so you will need to watch very carefully and listen to the sound effects. Here is the link to click on Little Boat Video

What happened to the boat on its journey? Listen and watch again. Write down any words or phrases you think of that describe the journey. Try to think of adjectives that describe the sounds, the weather, feelings, what you see etc. Draw a picture of the boat in your book and write your words and phrases all around the boat. 

Topic

Today we are going to try to solve a mystery. Why was a ship as strong and as well built as the Titanic capable of being sunk on its first voyage?  Download the cards from the attachments. Talk about the possible explanations with an adult. Not everybody agrees on why the Titanic sunk.  I wonder which explanation you think is most likely? You can write your chosen explanation in your book.
