The Re-opening of the Highwayman
term when we looked at the Highwayman we looked at it as a poem,
but now we are trying to persuade a judge to re-open the case of
the Highwayman. Nearly every thing went wrong so now it’s
up to us to put things right!
The tale of the Highwayman and his lover Bess
(plus the nasty villain’s!!!) begins at the old inn where
Bess and her father lived and worked. One night the Highwayman
and Bess were talking, but Tim the Ostler was listening to their
every word. Tim loved Bess, so he told the red coats were to find
one of the many Highwaymen they were searching for. When he did
get caught he was shot , but that’s not all……….they
tied Bess up for no reason!!!! And they forced her to shoot herself.
But how I hear you ask, well they tied a musket (a type of gun)
to her breast. So after that the highwayman and Bess became ghosts
Some of the things we learned this time are things
we didn’t know before. The Highwayman has been even more
interesting now we have investigated the case of crimes committed
and how the soldiers acted illegally. Most of the evidence we
had was very interesting to study.
When we were investigating the story we did some
hot-seating where six people (seven if you count the Lucy Bess)
dressed up as the characters and answered lot’s of questions
that were thrown at them. They did it very well.
When we did the hot-seating we interviewed all of the characters
and found out all about their side of the story. It was very interesting
to find out what they thought about all of the things that happened.
We even tied both Bess’s up with a gun to show everyone
Then we went
to court to try and persuade the judge (i.e. Miss Daniels) to
re-open the case of the highwayman. We spent days practicing our
speeches using all of our persuasive skills. On the day, we used
the interactive white board to show our evidence while we presented
our cases to the judge and the rest of the class. Most of us felt
nervous about speaking in front of the class but some loved it.
It was brilliant fun and even though some were scared every-one

Class 4 are started 2005 with a new teacher.
Miss Daniel comes from Appledore which makes her almost local !
She trained in Nottingham
and is really good at music. We all think that we are very lucky that
she came to work at Bradworthy.
4 have been studying the Second World War.
This poem was written by Maisie about the thoughts and feelings
of the people of Coventry when their Cathedral was destroyed by
bombs in an air raid.
and sorrow filled the air,
cries of children here and there.
Father, Father please forgive,
so many people here to live.
watch up there and see the fear,
Why can’t your power stop it here?
no more destruction,
no more pain,
and no more war for the world.
fire lighting in the sky,
why go on, why, why?
This cross burned but now I realise,
you’re showing that was how you died.
Our Autumn topic was
all about rivers.
4 have been visited by our local river bailiff who talked to the children
about his job
and about the River Torridge.
We considered habitat, looking at some of the animals and plants which
live in the Torridge.
