    Hi Pav,
    Do you teach any Michael Morpurgo books in English? I have a unit of work which covers several of these topics through reading Kensuke's Kingdom. The children study the book in English and then further embed their learning through Geography. It includes lesson plans which cover the ideas of settlement and land use as well as energy, food, minerals and water.

    In addition to this I have a unit of work which compares two countries through Michael Morpurgo's books: 'The Kites are Flying!' and 'Shadow.' This is more complex work, certainly aimed at Year 6. It investigates the ideas of ethnicities and the impacts upon civilisation, the impacts of forced migration (very topical) and quality of life.

    Please see my premium uploads for more information!
