- 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? 🛒

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