Activity 3

 

Normally during this half-term, we would read Kensuke's Kingdom by Michael Morpurgo. If you are able to get your hands on a copy, I would recommend that you read it - I love it! Without giving too much of the story away, how would you try to get home if you found yourself on a desert island?

 

Your challenge is to create a mini raft out of things lying around at home and then see if it floats in the bath or in a paddling pool. Good luck!

 

 

Activity 4

 

In the story, Kensuke paints in the style of the Japanese artist, Hokusai. One of his most famous paintings is the Great Wave off Kanagawa. Can you replicate this image by either sketching it or using the template below?

 

Activity 5

 

Below is a map of Kensuke's Kingdom. Can you replicate the map on tea/coffee stained paper? Alternatively, you can create your own ancient/treasure maps.

Activity 2
I know that some of you have been growing plants and vegetables over the past few weeks. Have any of you tried growing something that is currently in your fridge? Before you throw out an old tomato or pepper, put a slice into a small pot and cover with soil; alternatively, you could plant some melon, lemon, or any other fruit's seeds. In a few weeks' time, it might begin to sprout...
