We have now finished our story 'Street Child'. Hopefully you will have started to develop your understanding of what it would have been like for a child to grow up in the workhouse. Jim manage to escape the workhouse however Tip was too afraid to leave because he knew how bad the punishment could be if they were caught.
Today, you are going to write as if you are Tip. You are going to write about your day in the workhouse. This can be done as a diary entry or a chronological report (using headings to talk through different parts of the day- in order). Make sure you include lots of detail about the workhouse conditions, how the people living there feel and how they are treated.
