In the news…

This week we have continued to think carefully about the different characters in the poem, The Highwayman and have written newspaper reports about the event. We have explored shades of meaning and tried to use much more sophisticated vocabulary. The results have been fantastic as many children continue to make great progress in their writing.
We have also been reviewing our reading skills – particularly word meaning and inference questions. In grammar, we have looked at the subjunctive form and talked about how we might use this in our Highwayman writing next week. For example:
If I had known the soldiers were coming, I would have demanded Bess run away.
I demand the soldiers be punished for their actions.
If Bess were still alive, she and the Highwayman would be together forever.
If the landlord were the king, he would execute the soldiers.
