This term we are reading a book called Street Child by Berlie Doherty. It is set in London during the 1860s and tells the story of Jim Jarvis, a homeless orphan who ends up in a workhouse. London in the 1860s is a dangerous and lonely place for a small boy and life is a constant battle for survival. We follow Jim through a series of exciting adventures as he tries to gain his freedom.
Some of our writing will be based around the story and we will also be learning about life during Victorian times. This will include two days experiencing life in a Victorian classroom!
This term our annual visit to the Conway Centre takes place in October, and in December the children will be performing in the School Pantomime.
