Thank you for visiting our class page.

This term, Year 5 will be reading a wonderful Victorian novel called the 'Street Child'. It is a story of young Jim Jarvis, a boy struggling to survive on the streets of Victorian London after his mother dies.

Jim is left all alone in the workhouse and is desperate to escape. However, London in the 1860s is a dangerous and lonely place for a small boy and life is a constant battle for survival. Just when Jim finds some friends, he is snatched away and made to work for the remorselessly cruel Grimy Nick and is constantly guarded by his vicious dog - Snipe. 

Will Jim ever be free? 


Jim's gripping adventure in this tale is based upon the true story of the orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnardo to set up his famous children's refuge. 

Attached are the statutory Year 5 spelling lists for Autumn 1. Over the first few days, we have been testing the children on their current spelling knowledge and will be providing them with an individualised weekly spelling list that is suitable to their needs. These have been attached to their Reading Records so please take the time to sit with your children and support them with these as often as possible. If you have any questions, please ask.
