Still image for this video
Class 5 have been studying Kensuke;s Kingdom and were interested in the orangutans in the story, so we looked more closely at them and were surprised that they were critically endangered. The pupils looked at the reasons why and produced poems in order to persuade humans to stop their harmful activities.
