Year 5's Class Assembly

6th May 2022
Year 5 were very pleased to be able to welcome parents into school this morning to watch their assembly based on 'The Highwayman' by Alfred Noyes.
 
This classic, narrative poem is a recommended text for study by pupils in Upper Key Stage 2.  The children enjoyed learning the poem and being able to recite it to their audience. 
 
This popular poem formed part of the class's recent English studies which developed the pupils' understanding of imagery and figurative language with its range of similes, metaphors and personification.
 
The pupils also enjoyed sharing newspaper reports, drawings and photographic freeze frames of scenes from the poem.  In addition to this, the children enjoyed learning in class about the history of Dick Turpin.
