Year 6 – Rowling


Welcome to Rowling Class

With Mrs Parkes and Miss Drew

Our class text this half term is Street Child Berlie Doherty by Julia Golding.

Jim Jarvis is a runaway. When his mother dies, Jim is all alone in the workhouse and desperate to escape. But London in the 1860s is dangerous and lonely place for a small boy and life is a constant battle for survival. Jim's gripping adventure is based on the true story of the orphan whose plight inspired Doctor Barnardo to set up his famous children refuge.

In year 6 we have implemented 'The Primary Writing project.' The aim of the Primary Writing Project is to motivate children as readers and writers, deepening understanding and refining skills so that children make good progress and standards are raised. The project is based on clusters of schools, with a similar interest in improving reading and writing.
