This post-visit English activity enables students to engage with their visit to Robin Hill in a peripheral sense, once they return to class after their trip. The resource task enables them to practise their writing, planning and performance skills, and can incorporate a photography task on-site.
Students will be asked to produce a speech (in small groups) to deliver to children in the year below, in order to persuade them to visit Robin Hill the following year.
Students will be asked to produce a speech (in small groups) to deliver to children in the year below, in order to persuade them to visit Robin Hill Country Park the following year.
Students will have to use supporting visuals and possibly data to enhance their speech, which will be evaluated by their younger peers.
Prior to their visit, students could be asked to take photographs which really capture their fun experience at Robin Hill. Upon return to school, students will be given the task of imagining that they have been tasked to promote the park by the manager of Robin Hill. They will have to deliver a speech to the year below which will persuade them to want to go to Robin Hill themselves.
Persuasive speeches will have to be investigated and students should be encouraged to use visual images to support their work; this could include using elements of the web site, in addition to the photographs (or video clips) which they took on-site. Genre-specific language
will be utilised, alongside the need to deliver a presentation with confidence and enthusiasm. Students in the year below will choose their favourite speech, perhaps using a check-list to evaluate the presentations. Students will benefit from an enriched experience as they will be using their visit in a creative way.
