On 13/12/2021 we identified that this resource may be outdated:
This attraction is no longer open at Blackgang Chine. However, students could still read the poem and undertake the activities as a pre-visit or post-visit task.
Students read the Weather Wizard's poem about the weather, identify the use of rhyme, then plan and write their own weather poem.
This post-visit / follow-up activity focuses on poetry. The resource enables students to engage with a venue-relevant text (in this case a poem displayed at one of the key attractions). The different elements of the task encourages them to practise their reading and writing skills. Students can identify rhyming words and rhyme scheme within the Weather Wizard poem at Blackgang, and then craft their own poem using the original as inspiration.
The questions could be discussed in class prior to the trip so students are aware that they need to read the poem in the Weather Wizard attraction during their visit.
