This term, our class book is Street Child by Berlie Doherty. We will be following the journey of Jim Jarvis through the Victorian Era and the troubles that he faces. Through this book we will be focusing on a variety of genres and linking it to our year group targets. Making links with our class book, we will be learning about the Industrial Revolution which links to our Global Goal this term- Decent Work and Economic Growth.

Wow Day!

Year 5 learned about child labour and the fashion industry through their wow day. Firstly, we investigated clothing to see what it was made of and where it was made. We found that our clothes were made in places such as Bangladesh, Shri Lanka, Vietnam, Chile and Indonesia.

We then learned what it could be like to work in a cotton mill. We tried to create thread from raw cotton and we also learned how to stitch two pieces of material together by hand- something which many people are still doing as part of their jobs.

Next, we learned that child labour was a big part of the cotton industry during the industrial revolution and sadly that is could be a dangerous and scary time to be a poor child. Furthermore, we found out that child labour still happens today in many industries and many children across the world are not having their rights met.

Finally, we talked about how we could help to stop child labour through protest, which will be our aim for this term!

Article 32:

You have the right to be protected from work that is bad for your health and education. You have the right to be paid fairly for work that you do

Gurdwara Visit:


Year 5 visited the Gudwara today! We learned so much about Sikhism and had a really interesting visit.  During this session we were comparing different places of worship for different faiths. It was really interesting to see the similarities and differences between the Church and the Gudwara. We talked about the holy book, (the Guru Granth  Sahib) saw where it was read and kept, and we even had some drinks and biscuits at the end. We were so grateful to the volunteers that showed us around!
