Highwayman Day

We had a great day at the end of our first half of Spring term, when we celebrated and continued our work on THE HIGHWAYMAN. We created some beautiful artwork using pastels and pencils and studied the characters from the poem and the scenery and setting in the poem. We drew the misty, purple moor as Bess would have seen it from her window.

We were treated to a performance from some of the children in Class 12 who had given up break times and lunch times to practise and perform their own version of the HIghwayman. It was so special because they did it entirely on their own with no teachers helping at all!

We even had a visit from one of the most famous villains in history- none other than Dick Turpin himself! We got to ask him lots of questions and found out all about his exciting life as a Highwayman.
