Street Child

This week we have started our new class book ‘Street Child’ by Berlie Doherty. We have met Jim Jarvis and his sisters and mum and are looking forward to hearing the rest of his story. Today we wrote haikus and tankas to communicate characters thoughts and feelings and to give a flavour of the first chapter. We will post some up once they are finished.

The picture above is of our special Street Child display in our book corner. Last Friday we explored Victorian houses in our local area and then we sketched them and used water colours to paint our own. They are displayed altogether to make our very own Victorian street.

What are your thoughts about the book so far? What do you think will happen next? What will happen to the family if they have no money?

Does anyone have any ideas about what else we could add to our book corner display?

    • We could have Jim like Marce said and if we have time we can put Emily,Lizzie and Ma in the background but maybe not Rosie and Stickman yet as we don’t know involved they are in the rest of the book.


      • Good idea. Yes we are not very far into the book so we don’t know if those characters will feature later. How should we dress Jim?
