On Wednesday 14th October, we (Year 6) went on a trip to Sitges to experience life as castaways on a desert island – just like Michael, the main character in a book we have been reading. It’s called Kensuke’s Kingdom and is amazing! The author is called Michael Morpurgo, and we love the way he writes. We made a shelter, practised making fire with magnifying glasses, wrote a message in a bottle, read from the book, made sketches of the landscape and even played football with a flat ball, just like Michael and Kensuke in the book! The day was really fun but it also helped us to understand quite how difficult life on the island must have been. What a wonderful trip!
