Come and join us on our adventure into Kensuke's Kingdom
"I heard the wind above me in the sails. I remember thinking, this is silly, you haven’t got your safety harness on, you haven’t got your lifejacket on. You shouldn’t be doing this . . . I was in the cold of the sea before I could even open my mouth to scream."
Washed up on an island in the Pacific, Michael struggles to survive on his own. With no food and no water, he curls up to die. When he wakes, there is a plate beside him of fish, of fruit, and a bowl of fresh water. He is not alone . .
Year 5 are really enjoying Kensuke's Kingdom! After reading the part where Michael finds himself stranded on a desert island, Miss Butterworth and Miss Daly thought it would be a wonderful idea to have our own 'Desert Island Adventure day'.
The children were split into teams and had to think about their priorities for survival. An exciting day with shelter building, food tasting and fire starting was planned....... then we were joined by Storm Doris.
Not deterred by the wind and rain, year 5 persevered in attempting to make shelters and fire. Take a look below at some photos of our interesting and unforgettable day!
