Kensuke's Kingdom

What a fantastic way to start the year with listening to Michael Morpurgo's Kensuke's Kingdom.  A gripping story from the start that captured children's interest.  The story of a young boy who finds himself lost at sea and then stranded on an island.  Is he alone or not? 

The children used this as stimulus for a variety of genres from diary entries to a newspaper report.  They focused on uplevelling their language and beginning to use a range of punctuation correctly.

We would thoroughly recommend this text.
