Hungry, homeless and helpless

Year 4 were fully immersed within the sights and sounds of  London on a cold, damp evening as they interviewed ‘Jack’, a homeless teenager to understand how he had become homeless and how he felt living on the streets in this way. This experience led to the children writing well informed narrative openings (cold tasks) full of empathy and reflection. We will build on this experience over the unit, exploring characterisation and setting as the children create their own characters and bring them to life.
