This is a pre- or post-visit English resource that engages students with their visit to Red Funnel ferries. The resource task extends childrenâ€™s knowledge of Red Funnelâ€™s involvement with the local community. The task enables them to develop their reading comprehension skills which will be relevant to the curriculum at upper key stage 2.
Students will demonstrate various reading skills: e.g. reading of texts for meaning and for specific information. They will summarise and present information from the text in their own words, and respond to specific questions. Students will demonstrate their skills when answering questions of a varying complexity. They will demonstrate their understanding of non-fiction texts.
