Students are asked to put the story into the correct sequence after teachers have cut and jumbled the story components.
This is an R.E. resource for key stage 1 that engages students with one element of their visit to Blackgang Chine Theme Park. The resource task enables them to demonstrate their understanding of the Bible story about Jonah and the Whale (linked to one of the key attractions for younger children at Blackgang Chine: Jonah’s Whale).
Students are asked to put the story into the correct sequence after teachers have cut and jumbled the story components. The task has crossover aspects with English (structure of a story).
This is a simple, peripheral resource that can be completed before, during or after the students’ visit to Blackgang Chine on the Isle of Wight.
There are 2 versions: on page 1, a smaller card sort which could be completed by individual or paired students in the classroom pre- or post-visit; then on pages 2-6 there are larger versions of the cards that could be used with students in a circle, either in the classroom or perhaps at the Blackgang Chine park at the site of the whale.
The tasks can be integrated into lessons at any stage throughout the academic year where appropriate to teachers’ schemes of work in this subject. It could perhaps link with an assembly. It is anticipated that students will have an enriched experience as they will be reflecting on their school visit activities in a relevant way, that links to their wider studies.
