This is a post-visit English writing resource (with some on-site preparation) that engages students with their visit to Blackgang Chine Theme Park. The resource tasks enable them to practise their researching, recording, crafting and composition skills. Students are asked to write to inform, using their experiences at Blackgang Chine as their stimulus material. The task links to Restricted Area 5 which they will have explored during their visit.
The task could be discussed in class prior to the trip so students are bearing this in mind when on their visit, focusing on the research possibilities during their experience at Blackgang Chine.
Students could make notes and compile a list of questions for which they would like to find an answer.
