Kensuke’s Kingdom teaching resources
141 slide fully editable PowerPoint presentation
Our Kensuke’s Kingdom teaching resource covers a range of activities which provide opportunities for reading and writing using the novel Kensuke’s Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. There are links to extend and enrich children’s learning and teachers will identify several opportunities arising from these activities such as art and craft work (origami, the art of Hokusai); links to RE (Zen and Shinto religions); the study of Japan; astronomy; habitats; World War 2; mountains and many more. It is frequently used as a Year 6 / Year 7 transition unit of work but can easily be adapted to be used to fit in with other requirements.
All the Kensuke's Kingdom activities included in the resource are structured chronologically. Teachers can use the resource as it is or select from and adapt the activities to meet the needs of the children they teach. There are plenty of suggested grammar activities embedded throughout.
