Street Child

We are currently reading Street Child, written by Berlie Doherty.

Picture 1

Street Child is set in London in the 1860s - the Victorian era.  Pupils have been introduced to Jim Jarvis, his Ma and his two sisters, Emily and Lizzie.  The family are poor and Jim's Ma is ill.  What will become of Jim and his family? 


We have used drama to understand the emotions of the characters and will update this page as we explore the book further.
