Students use the information given, and their own research, to construct an informative and illustrative Red Funnel timeline.
This is a pre- or post-visit history resource that links to students’ travel experience with Red Funnel ferries. The resource practises skills that link to the curriculum, specifically relating to students’ understanding of continuity and change, cause and consequence, and connections between local and national history, enabling an understanding and use of chronological frameworks.
The resource enables students to explore ferry growth and change in the nineteenth, twentieth, and twenty-first centuries, looking at local and national reasons for development and change.
Tasks are designed to be completed pre-visit or as a follow-up to the trip to the Isle of Wight. Students should work together in mixed ability groups.
Teachers can cut up the ‘Vessel Information’ panels to allow students to construct their timeline information, and then can also distribute the latter information pages for students to use to extract information they find useful and interesting.
The final outcome could be group timelines on paper or a class wall display with all aspects of Red Funnel history and history-related causes evident. Teachers are free however to utilise the resource pages as desired.
The task offers opportunities for data interpretation, analysis and research, and more able students could produce bar graphs, charts and other statistical representations to support their work.

They will present their findings in a chronological timeline, with supporting materials. They will demonstrate their understanding of sources of information, extracting information and explaining what is shown or can be inferred. They will use their own knowledge and also sources and research to assess importance and draw conclusions.
