Students are asked to write to entertain, using their experiences at Robin Hill as their stimulus material.
This is a post-visit English writing resource that engages students with their visit to Robin Hill Country Park. The resource tasks enable them to practise their crafting and composition skills.
Students are asked to write to entertain, using their experiences at Robin Hill as their stimulus material. The task links to The Rabbit Run, African Adventure and the Giant Maze (or the Duck Down Village for key stage 1 students) which they will have explored during their visit
This is a follow-up resource to be completed in the classroom post-visit. This task can be introduced before the visit to Robin Hill Country Park so that students are aware of the need to focus on their experience, taking note of the environment of The Rabbit Run, Giant Maze, Duck Down Village and African Adventure, thus forming ideas for possible creative responses. In particular, they need to concentrate on the senses: what they see, feel, and hear, as well as - for key stage
1 - the imaginative possibilities of adventure through their own play.
The tasks can be integrated into English lessons at any stage throughout the academic year although the best results will be achieved immediately following the visit. It is anticipated that students will have an enriched experience as they will be reflecting on their school visit activities in a creative way, and this will reinforce how English, and writing in particular, can be a valuable expressive tool.
Key Skills Practised
Writing to entertain: descriptive writing (narrative writing for KS1)
Creating a text from external stimuli
Crafting a creative response
Choosing language for effect; use of noun phrases, adjectives or adverbials
The task could be discussed in class prior to the trip so students are bearing this in mind when on their visit, focusing on the imaginative possibilities during their experience at Robin Hill Country Park.
During the Visit
Students could make notes on what they see, feel and hear in the park, including the Rabbit Run, Giant Maze, Duck Down Village (KS1 only) and African Adventure, recording any interesting imaginative ideas, etc.
