Guilty or not guilty?

This term we have been busy learning about 'The Highwayman' - a narrative poem by Alfred Noyes.

We examined the poem closely and looked at it from different character's points of view.

We then worked as detectives to collect evidence on whether we thought the Redcoats were guilty of mismanaging the investigation. 

We even held a mock court to make a final decision. The children all had different roles in the court: The Clarke of the Court 'swore in' the witnesses and they were then questioned and cross-examined by our panel of barristers; the judge kept order and the jury made notes before leaving to consider their verdict.

The atmosphere was very tense!

After much deliberation they came to the decision of ... GUILTY!


Have a look at some photographs of the trial.
