This is a post-visit English writing resource that engages students with their visit to Blackgang Chine Theme Park. The resource tasks enable them to practise their crafting skills.
Students are asked to write to entertain, using their experiences at Blackgang Chine as their stimulus material. The task links to The Land of Imagination 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 Blackgang Chine Theme Park so that students are aware of the need to focus on their experience, taking note of the environment of The Land of Imagination and forming ideas for possible creative responses, in particular reference to the senses: what they see, feel, and hear.
The tasks can be integrated into English lessons at any stage throughout the academic year as a revision tool or for writing practice. 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.
