Pupils will be interacting with the environment at Robin Hill in order to find out key information. They will have to find answers to questions and record the information carefully in order to carry out a mini-presentation back at school.
This is an on-site English resource with post-visit outcomes that engages children with their visit to Robin Hill. The resource task enables them to practise their reading and speaking skills, as well as their note-taking skills. The questions will allow them to find out specific information about Robin Hill.
Classes will be split into two groups. Each group will have a set of ten questions which they have to answer whilst on-site. Upon return to school, children will generate a mini presentation, showing the other group what they found out whilst at Robin Hill.
Prior to their visit, children could discuss the questions in their groups and suggest possible responses. These could be collated and reviewed upon return to the classroom and compared to the actual answers which children found out on their visit.
Children will also need to practise recording key information (in the form of notes/key words) prior to their visit.
When pupils arrive at Robin Hill, they can use the questions to interact with the environment at the site. They may be required to ask questions of adults at the site (if they are available) and they may also have to ask questions of the adult supporting their group. They will have to ensure that they record the responses given (in note-form) to take back to school.
Upon return to school, children will get back into their groups and discuss the information given. They will generate their mini- presentation to perform in front of the other half of the class.
Each child will be able to participate as both groups will have question g, which allows for a variety of responses.
