This week in English – WB 20.3.17

Friday 24th March | 11 comments

This week in English, we have turned the events at the start of The Highwayman into a newspaper report based around the poem before the soldiers arrived. We looked at indirect and direct speech and the use of passive voice.


Next week, we are going to turn our attention to the tragic death of Bess at the hands of the redcoats. We are going to write persuasive letters from the point of view of the Landlord (her father) to ask for justice. Then, finish this topic with a courtroom debate to decide who, if anyone, is guilty of the murder of Bess.


Examples of work to follow!

    I am looking forward to the debate because I’m not quite sure what to expect. I’m not sure how it’ll be different to the ones we’ve done before and how it’ll be the same.
