Together we believe; Together we achieve


Tuesday 12th May


Today you have a choice of your activity:

Using your storyboard from yesterday you can EITHER:


1. Write a story. Pick either the highwayman or Bess, the landlord’s daughter and write the events of the poem as a story told from their perspective.

Think about their feelings, what they would say etc. At the end because both characters have died, you are going to have to change the ‘voice’.




2. Write a newspaper report on the events in the poem.

Think about your headline, the 5w introductory paragraph, which witnesses are you going to get quotes from, are you going to have a ‘photo’ and caption? Remember to write in the past tense.
