Students read the Weather Wizard's poem about the weather, identify the use of rhyme, then plan and write their own weather poem.
This post-visit / follow-up activity focuses on poetry. The resource enables students to engage with a venue-relevant text (in this case a poem displayed at one of the key attractions). The different elements of the task encourages them to practise their reading and writing skills. Students can identify rhyming words within the Weather Wizard poem at Blackgang, and then craft their own poem using the original as inspiration.
This is a peripheral task that utilises one element of an attraction at Blackgang Chine as stimulus material for English skills. Designed as a follow-up task for use post-visit, the students can undertake the task as part of their reflection on what they learned during their visit to the Isle of Wight. Alternatively, teachers could complete this task during their visit at their accommodation or study centre if applicable.
Students need to have completed some work on poetry rhyme and rhyming structures before undertaking the tasks; alternatively teachers could support the students as they work through the resources, teaching the key elements as they progress.
