The Highwayman Poem by Year 5

The children have worked extremely hard on their narrative poem. I am super impressed with all the action and vivid imagery in their writing. 

As part of the Victorian day reading lesson, they had to memorise and perform their lines to create a class poem. I am incredibly proud of each one of them. Enjoy watching :)
