15/06/20 - Kensuke's Kingdom - week 1

Week 1 :  Chapters 1 and 2

We are starting a fabulous new book, which we plan on using until the end of term.  If you are in school we will be reading this together in the afternoons.  If you are not in school but have a copy of the text 'Kensuke's Kingdom' please feel free to read it to yourself.  We have attached the audio files for you to listen to so you don't have to have the book to enjoy the story. 

Apologies that there are so many files, but the computer will only upload short bits at a time - it's honestly not that long!! (about half an hour in total, but you don't have to listen to it all in one go!)

Have a listen and then try the activity at the bottom of the page:
