Focus: This week we continue to explore all there is to know about the Titanic. This week we concentrate on the Titanic sinking.

 

Think about these two subjects in relation to Titanic.

- Titanic

- Passengers

 

For each subject, write two adjectives, three verbs and two nouns, which link to these topics, e.g. for Titanic you may use:

 

Adjectives: magnificent, doomed

Verbs: sailing, colliding, sinking 

Nouns: vessel, ship

 

Use www.wordhippo.com  to improve your vocabulary.

 

Activity:

Once you have chosen your nouns, adjectives and verbs, use these to create a ‘diamante poem’. 

 

Diamante poems use this structure:

Noun (Titanic)

Adjective, Adjective

Verb, Verb, Verb

Noun, Noun, Noun, Noun

Verb, Verb, Verb,

Adjective, Adjective,

Noun (passengers)

 

The words in green will be the ones you generated for Titanic and the word in red will be the ones you generated for passengers.

 

A completed example may look like this:

Titanic

Magnificent, Doomed

Sailing, Colliding, Sinking

Vessel, Ship, Men, Women

Gazing, Exploring, Searching,

Poor, Rich,

Passengers

 

Now try writing your own Diamante poem. If you want to, send me an email on Purple Mash with your poem. Good luck!
