Task– Find out about the crew of Titanic. How many crew were on board?
Activity– Skills we are developing- organising information on a mind-map.
Choose four members of the crew. Find out the skills needed for their jobs on board, the work that they would do on board, the uniform they would wear, the qualities your member of the crew would need to have.
Show this information on a clear, well organised mind-map. ‘Crew’ can be your title in the middle then draw your triangle shaped branches, each showing the information about a member of the crew. Your small, detailed illustration for each, could show your crew members in the clothes they wore on board Titanic.
First class passengers on Titanic were able to enjoy listening to music whilst dining. The musicians played instruments including the cello, violin and piano,
Music – We are learning about the instruments in an orchestra.
