Stand and Deliver!

To link our History and English, Year 6 have been exploring the crime of highway robbery in Early Modern history. We explored its causes: horses becoming affordable, unguarded roads and a lack of banks leading the wealthy to cart their riches around with them. We researched the notorious Dick Turpin and his female counterpart Moll Cutpurse. We read the famous  poem ‘The Highwayman’ by Alfred Noyes, a romantic ballad about a Highwayman and his doomed love for Bess, the landlord’s black- eyed daughter.  Year 6 wrote their own poems inspired by this wonderful poem with its rich evocative language.
