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).
The task could be completed in class prior to the trip so students have the story in mind when they visit the whale during their visit to Blackgang Chine.
Students may complete the task on site in the area of the whale, if desired, using the larger cards
Students may complete the resource on their return to school, after seeing the whale and becoming interested in the story behind it.
Students will have demonstrated that they can identify the stages of a story. Students will have shown their understanding by placing cards in the correct sequence.
