The Highwayman

Maple class absolutely loved reading the Highwayman by Alfred Noyes; we read the story over several weeks and they explored the language within the text, hotseated characters from the story and predicted what they thought would happen at different points – no-one saw the actual ending coming!

Throughout their work they produced setting and character descriptions along with internal monologues for the different characters.  They also created some beautiful pastel work portraying the setting at the start of the book.


Finally they wrote their own versions of the story from the point of view of one of the characters; they have made them into their own books which are own display outside our classroom.
