R10 Kensuke’s Kingdom Trip
On 19th September, R10 went on a trip to the Gower to learn about how to survive on a desert island. In English they have been reading Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo where the main character, Michael, is ship-wrecked onto a deserted island without any belongings.
R10 learnt about the importance of shelter and water, then in groups built shelters and a solar still.
Hopefully this has made the pupils think carefully about what Michael will need to do to survive and will help them when they write their own survival stories.
