The Highwayman comes riding…

This week, we have been studying the famous poem “The Highwayman” composed by Alfred Noyes.  This tells the story of the highwayman’s visit to see the beautiful Bess at an old inn, and of the terrible fate they both meet.

We have imagined ourselves as characters from the poem and written our thoughts, considered different viewpoints and looked at the imagery, rhyme and rhythm of the poem.  We finish by creating a short movie presentation, consisting of reading the poem aloud, adding sound effects and illustrating the tragic tale with our artwork.
