Kensuke’s Kingdom 22 Apr 2013

In Literacy we have been looking at stories that are set in different cultures. Our main text has been Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. We have been thinking and writing about:
What it would be like to sail around the world…what are the pros and cons?
What three items would we want with us if we were deserted on an island and why?
Describing the characters in the story.
Writing mind maps and drawing from the text.
Researching Japanese war and soldiers that have been found in hiding many years after the war has finished.
Studying and writing books blurbs.
Writing Kensuke’s life story.
Designing book covers and working as illustrators for this text.
What a great book!
Have a look at some of the work on our learning wall:
