9B have been looking at the novel Stonecold this half term. The novel is about a teenager, Link, who find himself homeless after leaving school because of family problems. He makes his way to London.
Link completely mismanages his money and is taken advantage of by an unscrupulous landlord in the first week and soon ends up on the streets. Ms Ward and 9B used the materials available from behind the school to look at how easy it was to build a shelter. We also looked at what the priorities would be when looking at finding shelter, and what challenges a homeless person faces every single day.
