# Thursday 7th May – Year 6

Have a look at this picture:

What are the first impressions you get of this person? Who is it? What is he doing? When is this picture set?

Over the next few weeks, we are going to be completing some work on a narrative poem call ‘The Highwayman’ which was written by Alfred Noyes in 1904 and first published in 1907.

Firstly you need to know that a narrative poem is a poem that tells a story.

Coach during the time the poem was set.

Have a look at the PowerPoint below to learn about one of the most famous Highwaymen.

the numbers 16 17 18 and 19 are very confusing to say.

• 7th May 2020 at 11:43 am

They are! Why do you think they are so tricky?

English.
The first impression I get from the poem is that it is a little dark and gloomy because of the descriptive language that is used in the first and last few lines of the poem. Also, how the highwaymen are described as to be very frightening.

I think that the poem is about how you have to be weary of some people and also it is telling a story of people and giving people information on how they acted and showing them that people can still be like this in the time that we are living.

In my opinion, I think the main characters are Bess (the landlord’s daughter) Dick Turpin, Matthew King and Stephen Potter.

Well done for giving it a go!

My first impression of the poem was it very long and a bit repetitive, Alfred Noyes used the word moonlight a lot. Some parts were interesting and really good to read.
The poem is about the highway man and his lover Bess meeting in the night. Another man is jealous because he likes Bess, so he tells the kings men when they plan to meet again. The kings men tie up Bess with a gun in front of her pointing to her chest and wait for the highway man to come. She hears his horse in the darkness and shoots herself to warn him so he can get away. The highway man gets shot at noon on the highway by the kings men.

Did you find the numbers easy to learn?

ENGLISH:
The first impression i get of the photo is not modern day because you don’t usually find people riding horses anymore I generally feel like this picture was set in the 90s or 80s because during the times (when my mum rode horses) many people where riding horses but now it is technology this technology that. I think he looks stubborn and brave.

That means you didn’t run the PowerPoint? Next time open up the PowerPoint properly and then you will get to answer the questions before the answers come up.

Spanish

Maths.
On the questions it shows the answers on each one.

• 7th May 2020 at 11:49 am

If you run the PowerPoint as a slide show, it gives you a chance to answer the questions first.

• 7th May 2020 at 10:56 am

my first impression is that the poem is a very long and it repeats one verse and very old in writing and words are very hard to pronounce. I think it is about the highway man and the horse meeting at night but it dose not say if the do or they don’t meet in the poem. i think the main characters are Turpin, Matthew King and Stephen Potter. And I think the main event is when the kings men kill the highway man
