We’d like you to imagine you were the captain of a cruise ship. You’re planning your world-wide river cruise. We’d like you to design an advertisement poster to sell tickets.Consider the following information to include:

  • What rivers will you visit (your reading above will help)?
  • What famous landmarks will you see?
  • What special features does your cruise ship have?
  • …and of course, how much will the tickets be? 🛒


Mr Garry’s spellings: trip, river, bank, mouth, ticket, landmark, sights, cruise, source

Mrs Calley’s spellings: natural, occasional, actual, accidental, medical, national, capital, vocal

Get Creative:

Let’s get arty!

We’d like you to imagine your cruise ship has docked at a beautiful scene. Can you draw it?


  • Are you visiting a famous city with amazing architecture? It could be London, Berlin…
  • Are you visiting a historic landmark; think Egypt?
  • Is it a beauty spot showing off nature?

Use any media you like: sketching pencil, coloured pencils, paints, felt tips, materials…

Time to Move:

You can complete your own outdoor activity or complete at least 2 ‘PE with Joe Wicks’ sessions, Oti Mabuse dance sessions, or Cosmic Kids Yoga sessions this week.


Science – Enquiry time!

Once again this week we are encouraging you to be real scientists and to make careful observations about shadows.

How does a shadow change over time?

See the attached sheet for more information, along with the sundial activity for a bit of an extra hands-on challenge. Have fun!


Let’s begin to move on from analogue time to digital time.

Stater: The video below is a nice introduction to reading digital clocks.

Main Activity: Use the flashcards to read the digital ties for o’clock, half past and quarter past:

Complete the matching activity with analogue clocks and digital clocks showing the same times.

Read the individual world river fact sheets. Can you mimic the style to write you own fact sheet about your chosen river? This could be a river taken form your reading comprehension or you could research your own-the River Mersey or the River Thames for example.
