Reading is an essential life skill and it is important that children read for pleasure, whether that be fiction or non-fiction texts.
The home reader is a book they have chosen for you to enjoy together. Please make a short note in the reading diary about your child's reading.
Please remember that you shouldn’t expect your child to read this book alone. Read it to or with them. Discuss the text, enjoy the story, predict what might happen next, explore the facts in a non-fiction book. Reading is fun!
In class, we are reading Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. Below is some detail about the story.
A desert-island adventure, and a subtle observation of friendship, trust and humanity. Winner of The Children’s Book Award.
When Michael is washed up on an island in the Pacific after falling from his parents’ yacht, he struggles to survive on his own. But he soon realises there is someone close by, someone who is watching over him and helping him to stay alive. Following a close-run battle between life and death, the mysterious stranger – Kensuke – allows Michael into his world and they become friends, teaching and learning from each other, until the day of separation becomes inevitable.
