Over this half term, Year 5 children have been reading the romantic ballad 'The Highwayman', written by Alfred Noyes and first published in 1906. After studying the poem over several weeks, the children now have an excellent insight into the characters. This week, they all worked brilliantly to write a diary entry, written from the perspective of Bess, the landlord's daughter, who is in love with the highwayman. They used evidence from the text and empathised with Bess to produce some wonderful writing. See what you think from our small selection pictured here.
