Year 5 have produced some incredibly moving poetry work based on our current class reading book of Street Child. This tells the story of Jim, a Victorian child who has many problems to overcome.
One particular scene in the book that fascinated Year 5 involved Jim having a desire and will to escape from where he was being held. This is an incredibly intense passage in the book, with feelings of frustration and uses a great change of pace in the text.
Year 5 have written their pieces of text using some of these themes. The idea of freedom is central to this. You can listen to a couple of our pupils sharing their work in the audioboo below.
