This is an English writing (composition) task that enables students to practise their writing skills, specifically to review and to comment.
The task links to the students’ visit to Dinosaur Isle and is relevant to students in Key Stages 2 and 3. This task links the visit with core English writing/composition skills and allows students the opportunity to reflect on their learning and experience.
This task can be introduced before the visit to the Dinosaur Isle museum, in class, by studying the features of reviews; students could practise a review on a local area or a holiday destination they’ve visited.
When on site, students could make notes on the key features of the museum and its exhibits to use in their review on returning to class.
