Our Year 6’s were able to fully immerse themselves in our class text ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ this morning, by referring to our reading area and finding clues whilst reading our class book.
Chapter 8 of our book explained how our main character, Michael, had found a washed up ‘Coca Cola’ bottle on the deserted island he was stranded on. Michael decided to write a note to put in the bottle and sent it out to sea as an attempt to contact his Mum and Dad.
The children loved spotting this prop in our immersive reading area and were keen to discuss the benefits of using the bottle. Some ideas were that the plastic bottle is waterproof and isn’t biodegradable so they understood why Michael may have chosen this option!
