To aspire to being outstanding in everything we do by always aiming higher.

"Let your light shine in all you say and do" Matthew 5:16



Watch this clip of passengers boarding the ship, taken from the 1997 film Titanic:

(Note: Although the film has a 12 certificate, this clip is age appropriate).


Titanic Boarding Scene - YouTube

Watch again – pausing at key points as you watch, and jot down words or phrases for the things you can see and hear in the clip, such as: cars arriving, crowds of people, third-class passengers having a health inspection and the ship’s horn.

Now go back and improve your words and phrases for example, ‘cars arriving’ may become ‘luxurious cars arrived on the dock’ and ‘crowds of people’ may become ‘the crowds of people were like a swarm of ants’.

You may want to use Word Hippo to help you 'uplevel' and improve your words and phrases.


Once you have improved your sentences, have a go at writing this scene in a narrative form. Imagine this scene is for a new opening of a story about Titanic.

Write the opening to the story retelling this scene.

Don’t forget to include the words and phrases you have written.

You can select whether your opening is written in first person, ‘As I arrived, I saw Titanic for this first time’ or third person ‘As Character name (you choose your character) arrived, she/he saw Titanic for the first time.’

Make sure you continue to proof-read your work as you write, checking that you have continued in the person you have chosen, ie. first of third person. Check your work also for spelling and punctuation.
