Street Child” by Berlie Doherty is a historical novel set in Victorian England, telling the story of Jim Jarvis, a young orphan struggling to survive on the harsh streets of London. After escaping from a brutal workhouse, Jim faces numerous challenges and hardships, including hunger, exploitation, and homelessness. This gripping adventure is based on the true story of the orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnardo to set up his famous children’s refuge.

 In our English lessons, the children will select the appropriate grammar and vocabulary, understanding how such choices can change and enhance meaning, They will describe settings, characters and atmosphere and integrate dialogue to  convey character and advance the action. The children will use a wide range of devices to build cohesion within and across paragraphs and use further organisational and presentational devices to structure the text. 

 The writing this term will include poetry, letter writing, character description and a newspaper article. The children will also write a narrative which will showcase their writing skills.

Children should be reading at home everyday. We have a range of books, in the class and on Bug Club, that the children have access to. Please ensure that they are recording their reading in their reading journals. We will also be asking children to record interesting phrases and sentences from their reading that can be used in their writing. 


This term the children will use transition units to prepare for maths at secondary school. They will build on the fluency they have achieved by working on ‘Fluent in five’ questions – this increases the speed and accuracy of calculations.

Also we will look at the role of genes and genetic variation in determining traits passed from parents to offspring.

We will learn about the action we can take to slow down the process. We know that the world is an Amana from Allah (swt) and we need to carry out our duty by protecting the earth. During our lessons, we will be creating posters and speeches to raise awareness as well as using atlas to locate different climates and biomes around the world.
