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.

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.

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).
