Kensuke’s Kingdom

Persuasive Writing

Through speaking and listening activities, the children will explore the issues concerning the prospect of travelling around the world. They will use this information to write a balanced argument.


Adventure Story

Using the stimulus of ‘Kensuke’s Kingdom’ children will plan and write their own adventure story. Follow Y5 on their journey!


After studying a range of poetry by significant poets, the children will write and perform their own poems based on the theme of the sea.


The term ends with the children becoming budding play writers! This involves dramatisation of characters, writing stage directions and finally performing their plays to an audience.
