Kensuke's Kingdom - Autumn 2017

Welcome back to school! We hope you have had a fantastic and happy summer holidays. Mrs Dixon, Miss Wright and I are all excited to embark on the children’s learning journeys for the 2017-2018 academic year.


This half term we are going to focus a lot of our learning on the topic of ‘survival’ and we will start by studying Michael Morpurgo’s novel ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’. This emotional tale of survival and friendship will allow the children to consider the challenge and emotions faced by Michael, the main character, as he struggles to survive in a hostile environment. We will continue our theme of survival by applying our learning about forces and materials in science to construct survival structures and tools.
