Would You Survive on a Deserted Island?

As you know Kensukes Kingdom is our novel study this term. Within the novel a young boy called Micheal ends up on his own, alone on a deserted island. The children and I were having a discussion about what you would need to survive – apart from food and water! One thing that cropped up numerous times was that he would need a shelter. So, we decided we should make our own! Whilst making the shelters we were looking at what skills we would need but also what imperative verbs we would include if we were to write down instructions on how to build a shelter for someone else to read.

I’m sure the instructions will turn out great now we have a practical experience to refer back to! Check out the pictures below of us having fun building our shelters.
