TAPNELL FARM PARK

Rural Rebranding at Tapnell Farm

KS5 mixed abilityGeographyKnowledge and understanding of placesIdentify how and why places change

KS5 mixed abilityGeographyKnowledge and understanding of placesIdentify how and why places change

This is a KS5 Geography resource which engages students with the farming and working environment of Tapnell Farm Park. It includes comprehensive pre-visit, on-site, and post-visit activities. Students will learn about the concept of ‘place’ and how people may perceive places differently, and have a different ‘mental image’ of a place, depending on their age, ethnicity, race, religion, gender, and their role within the place, etc. They will consider how ‘lived experiences’ of place may affect a person’s view of it, and how this may change over time. They will consider Tapnell Farm Park as an example of a place, and will carry out research into both formal and informal representations of the Farm. Students will investigate ‘place-making’ at Tapnell, how rebranding and reimaging has strived to give the farm a new identity and image, and during their visit they will thoroughly explore what has been done to achieve this via the range of facilities, attractions, and amenities that the farm has to offer. They will also carry out a range of different field-based enquiries and surveys in order to evaluate the ‘success’ of the rebranding process to date. They will not only examine the positive ‘side’ of things, associated with all the activities and amenities on offer, but will also consider some of the issues associated with the tourist and leisure developments, and how these are being managed, including Tapnell’s approach to sustainability and ‘eco’/ethical tourism practices. In all, this study will form an excellent example to meet many of the criteria under the themes of ‘space, place and placemaking’ within the current KS5 Geography specifications. Before their visit, students will learn a little bit of background to the farm. There is an introduction on the worksheet that should be read carefully. Then, students are introduced to the term ‘place’ and the physical and human characteristics that make up a place. Task 1, called ‘place perceptions’, then encourages them to consider their mental image of the place they live, or of a place they know very well. Some discussion of their answers to the questions should take place here, in order to try and highlight some of the factors, and differing ‘lived experiences’, that can affect different people’s perceptions of place. Next, students are introduced to ‘formal and informal representations of place’. Some discussion to ensure that they know and understand the meanings of these terms should take place before they then get to know the farm through exploring a range of different resources which show informal representations of Tapnell. These include: an OS map extract, GIS, photographs, and various internet-based resources including specific Isle of Wight tourism sites. They will find out where Tapnell Farm is located, what it was like before and during ‘diversification’, and what it is like now. Using all of these resources, students are required to complete the table supplied on the worksheet in as much detail as they can. As far as possible, students should be encouraged to do this independently, so that differences in opinions can be explored through discussion once the table has been completed. Targeted teacher assistance will help less able students with completing the task. As well as highlighting the ways in which different ‘media’ and representations can affect our perception of a place, and how these vary from person to person, it will also provide a good opportunity for discussion of the geographical terminology and concepts so that students have a firm understanding before their trip.

KS4 high abilityGeographyHuman and Physical GeographyHuman Geography

This is a geography resource which engages students with the farming and working environment of Tapnell Farm Park. It includes pre-visit, on-site, and post-visit activities. This resource focuses mainly on the human geography of the farm, specifically focusing on farm diversification from dairy farming into leisure and tourism activities. Students will be investigating the range of facilities, attractions, and amenities that the farm has to offer during their visit. They will also consider some of the issues associated with the tourist and leisure developments, and how these are being managed, including Tapnell’s approach to sustainability and ‘eco’/ethical tourism practices. The resource introduces the relevant geographical terms, and leads students through fully understanding what they mean. On their return to school, they then use guidance in the resource to produce a newspaper report to creatively summarise all that they have learnt. Before their visit to the Tapnell Farm Park, students will learn a little bit of background to the farm. There is an introduction on the worksheet that should be read carefully. Then, students will get to know the farm through using a range of different resources, including an OS map extract, GIS, photographs, and specific Isle of Wight tourism sites. They will find out where Tapnell Farm is located, what it was like before and during ‘diversification, and what it is like now. Using all of these resources, students are required to complete the flow diagram in as much detail as they can. Targeted teacher assistance will help less able students with this. It may also be a good opportunity to outline and discuss all relevant geographical terminology so that students have a good understanding of these before their trip. All of this will prepare them fully for the activities that they will complete during their visit. Then, whilst on-site, students will carry out a range of varied and stimulating activities; their fieldwork and investigative skills will all be put to the test to really get ‘under the skin’ of the ‘geography’ around them. They will look at the tourism and leisure attractions and facilities and they will also consider the ‘wider’ geographical concepts of: potential conflicts and issues, the management strategies in place, and how Tapnell Farm Park is attempting to be sustainable and encourage eco-tourism. The differentiated worksheets offer more support to less able students by providing additional guidance and detail to get them started, while the higher ability worksheet allows more able students to be stretched and challenged through extension activities. It would be beneficial for the teacher(s) to have gone through these activities and, where possible, worked out the ‘answers’ so that students can be helped on the day if needed. Through the activities, there are also ‘cross-over’ opportunities with both a literacy and a numeracy focus to develop these vital skills alongside their geographical learning. On their return to school, there is guidance on the worksheet which guides them through creating a newspaper article based on what they have learnt about the farm. This can be delivered according to the wishes of the teacher(s).

Dairy Diversified: Moo-ving on from Dairy!

KS3 high abilityGeographyHuman and Physical GeographyHuman Geography

KS3 high abilityGeographyHuman and Physical GeographyHuman Geography

This is a geography resource which engages students with the farming and working environment of Tapnell Farm Park on the Isle of Wight. It includes pre-visit, on-site, and post-visit activities. This resource focuses mainly on the human geography of the farm, specifically focusing on economic activities; the focus is mainly on the primary and tertiary sector, but it also encourages students to consider associated activities in the secondary and even the quaternary sectors too. The resource leads students through understanding what the term economic activity mean, and how it is divided into primary, secondary, tertiary and quaternary categories, and how to make observations about and categorise economic activities that have taken, and are currently taking place on the farm. Through their study of this, they will also learn about how the farm has diversified from a dairy farm into tourism and recreation. On their return to school, they then use guidance in the resource to work in small groups to produce and deliver a presentation to the class to summarise all that they have learnt. The pre-visit activity starts by introducing the idea of economic activity to students, and they are prompted to consider what they think the term means. They will then watch a short video (https://www. youtube.com/watch?v=8KDxAWfMwf4 ) which introduces the dufferent categories of economic activity and complete a table to summarise what different types of jobs may be associated with each. Then, before they go, the ‘From Dairy to Diversification’ section gives them a little background to Tapnell Farm Park and outlines how the farm has diversified in recent years. A series of images show the farm as it was before, and during, construction and development of the current facilities and attractions. Students are asked to annotate these images to describe what they can see and explain the types of economic activity that are shown in the photo. Lower ability students are given hints on their worksheet, while higher ability students may be encouraged to consider what economic activities may be ‘inferred’ by, or associated with, the image as well as those that are immediately obvious. On site at Tapnell Farm Park, students will work through a variety of activities that are designed to help them to get to know the ‘workings’ of the farm, by making observations of and considering the different economic activities that they can see taking place both in plain sight and behind the scenes (information and stimulus material, in the form of photographs, is provided for the latter!)

KS2 (Upper) high abilityDesign & TechnologyDesignDesign For Purpose

This resource starts with a pre-visit lesson at school where an on-site activity will be created. The main designing activity is intended for completion back at school. The project covers a range of skills from questioning, creating within a team to presenting to an audience. The full project will cover a number of lessons. The pre-visit lesson allows students to refine their questioning skills. They will need to target questions towards the information they need for their research. The on-site resource will be created in this lesson. It will probably be fairly basic and should not last long. It could also be done at the beginning of the visit and may help students get to know their way around Tapnell Farm Park. This activity can be teacher-led on-site, or a more autonomous approach can be adopted where small groups follow their own path through the areas but accompanied by an adult. The main project will be continued in the classroom post visit and will be carried out in small groups. The project will see an idea reached, developed, drawn up and followed through to being presented to an audience.

The project covers a range of skills including questioning, role play and discussion, as well as empathy A pre-visit introduction will allow students to prepare for the on site tasks where they will be carrying out imaginary interviews with selected animals. They will need to target questions towards factual information and opinions. These could be prepared in this pre-visit lesson. If used in conjunction with the mini cross-curricular project resource, there is a pre-visit lesson plan provided that could be adapted. Once on site, students will look around and then choose one animal from the three sections of the park. They will then work with a partner to construct an imaginary interview with the animal of their choice extracting both factual information (using the signs), and opinions. Low ability worksheets are provided but students will need support in completing them. The main project should be continued in the classroom with a partner post-visit where the interviews should be worked on and role play encouraged. Extra time may be given for further research before interviews are practised and recorded.

KS2 (Upper) mixed abilityScienceBiologyLiving things and their habitats

The pre-visit task reinforces students understanding of life cycles. The on-site task relates the animals students will observe at Tapnell Farm Park to the concept of different stages within a variety of life cycles. They are then encouraged to describe the differences between the life cycles for mammals and birds. The post-visit task encourages students to research various gestation periods for a range of different animals. Students carrying out the pre-visit task will produce life cycle wheels. They use the worksheets to arrange a life cycle on a paper plate. A section is cut from a second paper plate which is then fixed on top. This allows the students to move the upper plate and display the various stages of a life cycle. The on-site task focuses on the observation of different animals and to relate the animals to the different stages of their life cycles. The task involves students observing an animal and completing the different stages of the life cycle on the worksheet. Students will observe a variety of different animals and complete the life cycle worksheets for a range of different animals. They will then focus on the life cycle of a mammal and a bird and describe the differences between the two life cycles. The post-visit task is a research exercise. Students complete the table by filling in the different gestation periods for various animals. The pre-visit aspects of this task enables students to work together in small groups or individually to produce life cycles. The on-site resource is designed to be completed individually during the trip to Tapnell Farm Park. The post-visit task can be completed individually or organised as a group activity.

The pre-visit task introduces students to the changes that occur during the growing up process. This leads into the concept of life cycles. The on-site task relates the animals students will observe at Tapnell Farm Park to the concept of different stages within a variety of life cycles. The pre-visit task encourages students to arrange sequencing cards into an order of ‘growing up’. Cards are then placed onto a piece of plain paper in a circle shape and arrows are drawn in between each card to form a life cycle. The on-site task focuses on the observation of different animals and to identify different stages of the life cycles. The task involves students observing an animal and identifying its stage of life cycle shown on the worksheet. Students will observe different animals and completing the life cycle worksheets for a range of different animals. The pre-visit aspects of this task enables students to work together in small groups or individually to produce life cycles.

KS2 (Upper) high abilityGeographyLocational KnowledgeSettlement and Land Use (Animals)

This resource is supported with a pre-visit lesson at school. There is an on-site activity lasting about 30 minutes and suggestions for follow up tasks to be completed back at school. The project covers a range of subject areas including science, history and geography. The initial classroom lesson prepares students for the on-site tasks by introducing the categorisation of animals (see associated lesson plan). The concept of artificial selection is introduced for years 5 and 6. This would link well with a study of Darwin and the theory of evolution. During their time on-site, students will complete a worksheet as they collect information about the animals. Once back at school, the project will be continued in the classroom where students investigate the difference between wild and domestic animals. There are some suggested activities provided for follow up work.

KS1 low abilityEnglishSpoken LanguageQuestioning, listening, recording and summarising

KS1 low abilityEnglishSpoken LanguageQuestioning, listening, recording and summarising

This is a Spoken Language task that enables students to practise their questioning and listening skills, as well as summarising techniques. The task links to specific information about the Isle of Wight Steam Railway that should be interesting and relevant to students in key stage 3.

Questions have been chosen because they link with core English Spoken Language skills and also specific cross-curricular skills for example in the subjects of History (how the past is represented) and Science (forces, materials and their properties, etc.). This task can be introduced before the visit to the Isle of Wight Steam Railway, in class, as a taster activity. Students could share their ‘guesses’ as to what the answers may be, as a class or in groups, and then will find out when attending the railway visit if they were accurate. Working in groups may better support lower ability students in terms of learning and understanding. Alternatively, the task can be introduced on arrival as an investigative activity to focus students’ attention on key areas during their visit.

When on site, students will be able to use the questions as prompts to engage with the volunteers and information at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway in order to find the answers to their questions, gaining a more enhanced and enriched visit experience.

This is a maths resource that engages students with their visit to the Dinosaur Expeditions Centre. The on-site resource task enables them to practise their measuring and number skills giving opportunities to demonstrate estimation, measurement, comparisons and conversions of numerical data and the solving of simple problems. Students are asked to complete a number of practical activities during their visit with options for follow up work back at school. This is an on-site resource, to be completed during the visit. There are three different units designed to be completed by smaller groups on a carousel system. However, parts of the tasks may be followed up afterwards at school should time not allow completion on site. It is anticipated that students will have an enriched experience as they will be using their school visit as a learning environment, and this will reinforce how the effective discovery and handling of data can provide solutions to problems.

KS3 mixed abilityArt & DesignCreativity in Art & DesignCreative Response to stimulus

The resource enables students to research and understand the important role of palaeoartists and to develop their own creativity and ideas when creating their own artistic response.

Furthermore, it allows students to use a range of techniques and media, if desired, to respond to their chosen palaeontological stimulus at the centre or back at school. Prior to their visit, students could carry out some research into palaeoart and its uses. One good example for study could be to look at the differences in representation of the Iguanadon and how and why this has changed over time. It is important to consider the purpose of palaeoart and how it links to the development of scientific understanding regarding fossils and the creatures they came from.

During their visit to the Dinosaur Expeditions Centre, students will identify types of palaeoart and will choose to respond creatively to something they are inspired by, such as a fossil or pattern. They may learn more about the changes in palaeoart and the different types and purposes of the artwork on display at the centre.

Upon return to school, students could further investigate palaeoart and how it can range from scientific to traditional, or indeed abstract, and can work on improving on their own artistic responses, perhaps using different media, e.g. charcoal/pencil/textiles etc.

Students could reflect on their finished pieces and decide which piece of work they prefer and why.

This is an art resource that engages students in key stage 3 with their visit to The Model Village Godshill. The resource incorporates a photography and sketching task, and enables students to develop their creativity and ideas. Furthermore, it allows them to investigate abstract art forms and use their sketches/photographs as a stimulus to produce a piece of art work. During their visit, students can use a digital camera and a sketch book to capture a variety of images. These could be close ups of leaves or flowers, or whole scenes which incorporate the landscapes crafted by the gardeners. Upon return to school, students will be given time to investigate abstract art forms (focusing on landscapes/flowers). They will build a portfolio of these images so that they can refer to them when producing their own composition. Students will choose their favourite sketch/image/close up from their visit to Godshill and recreate it in the abstract form. Students can choose their preferred media (e.g. paint/pencil/ textiles etc) but must provide justifications for their choices. They will then reflect on their finished pieces and provide feedback/ constructive criticism to each other.

This is a geography resource that engages students with their visit to The Model Village Godshill. Before their visit to the Isle of Wight, students will learn / revise the meaning of the term ‘land use’ and categories of land use. They will match images to the correct category to practise applying their understanding of the geographical terms. They will also learn how to interpret OS maps in order to identify different types of land use. When on-site, students will then look for examples of how land use is depicted at The Model Village, and can compare this with their own local area. The pre-visit activity is pretty self-explanatory; it guides students gradually through the concept of land use from understanding what the term means, and looking at the main categories of land use, to applying their understanding in the image-sorting exercise. It then takes it to the next level by introducing OS maps and students will learn to identify different types of land use on a variety of different map extracts. The on-site activities then focus on students working collaboratively to make observations of land use in the field.

KS2 (Upper) mixed abilityArt & DesignCreativity in Art & DesignCreative Response to stimulus

This is an art resource that engages students in upper and lower key stage 2 with their visit to The Model Village Godshill. For upper key stage 2, the task incorporates photography, sketching and mastery of art techniques. They will focus on the artistry of the trees and plants they see at The Model Village. In lower key stage 2, the task incorporates photography, sketching, observational skills and colouring techniques. During their visit to The Model Village Godshill, students will take photographs of some of the scenes which they see. They should be encouraged to consider the foreground and background of their photographs, and ensure that the miniature trees are incorporated in to their images. Lower key stage 2 students should be encouraged to incorporate plant/tree life in their photographs. All students should also be encouraged to take close-up shots of the leaf structure of some of the trees so that they can be closely examined at a later date. Upon return to school, upper key stage 2 students will complete two tasks. The first task will require them to complete pencil drawings of the different leaf types. They will need to consider the leaf shapes and experiment with techniques in order to show texture. The second task will be to recreate their favourite scene which they photographed. They will need to consider their use of colour carefully in order to show the different shades of yellow/green/brown trees. It is suggested that they use pencil crayons or paint for this task. Lower key stage 2 students will choose their favourite photograph and give reasons for their choices. They will cut their photograph in half, either vertically, horizontally or diagonally. When they have stuck this down on to a sheet of paper, they will have to sketch the missing half, before completing it with colour (referring to the original photograph). Once this is complete, they can compare the original photograph with their completed composition. *The size of the composition can be at the teacher’s discretion (as it could be enlarged on a photocopier, if required).
