On 13/12/2021 we identified that this resource may be slightly outdated:
The volunteers featured on these resources may no longer be at the Sanctuary. However the resource is still fully useable.
Students are asked to read a leaflet about volunteers at the Sanctuary. They then use a combination of contextual clues and their own knowledge and experience of skills and qualities, to complete a number of tasks.
This resource is designed to be used in the classroom as a post-visit resource. It is a comprehensive English task that engages students with their visit to the Isle of Wight Donkey Sanctuary. The resource tasks enable them to practise their speaking and listening, reading and writing skills. Students are asked to read an interview and to practise fluency. They then have a go at summarising the answers from memory, before attempting to write the interview up as a magazine article in third person.
Students will demonstrate their reading skills, showing evidence of understanding the meaning of a text and the ability to put it â€˜into their own wordsâ€™. They will also demonstrate their ability to identify first, second and third person pronouns and to apply what they have learned in the creation of their own writing.
