Robinson Crusoe
Week 1 of 2 from a study of Robinson Crusoe by Daniel Defoe (retold by Pauline Francis). Pupils will cover four chapters from the book, whilst preparing for the challenge of surviving on a desert island. The week culminates in the children roleplaying five months on their island: selecting strategies to overcome challenges. Text emphasis is on autobiographical writing. Lots to explain - better just read the plan!
