More rehearsals this week and our production is all coming together!

This week in English, we have been creating job adverts for a highwayman.

We combined our knowledge of Highwaymen with modal verbs to create some really fantastically fun writing and here are some examples


Secretive, stealthy and swift Highwaymen needed in the Hounslow Heath Area. Cutpurses and Footpads need not apply.

Are you feeling that you do not get enough pay? Well, you could be getting hundreds of guineas if you are the Highwayman we're looking for. We are looking to appoint a dashing Highwayman to join our established firm of Highwaymen.

Will you be like Turpin, Nevison, or Duval, who are some of the most famous Highwaymen who ever lived, and go down in HIstory?

You ought to be someone who is not scared to end their days hanging from Tyburn Tree.

You should be an expert in deadly weapons like flintlock pistols and rapiers.

NB You will need to own your own rapier, which must be kept sharp, in order to do your job properly.

You might be a butcher, which would be advantageous, as you know how to handle knives and not be scared of getting bloody!

You must be an expert horserider.

You might have a certain gallic charm and you should be a good dancer if you want to be like Calude Duval who would dance with his victms after robbing them.

If you can say yes to these statements then we want to hear from you!

Friday 20th March 2020

We have been really busy over the last 3 weeks: we celebrated World Book Day by dressing as our favourite book characters; we had a Sport Relief Day to raise money and have been thinking about our School Value of Responsibility.

This week, we have been studying Alice in Wonderland. Yesterday, we watched the start of 3 film versions of Alice in Wonderland and compared them. Our favourite one was the Disney one. In the afternoon we played croquet.

Today we will be making and evaluating land yachts in DT.

To the people who aren't here today, we miss you and we look forward to seeing you again.

For the next several weeks we will be learning in a different way. Some of us will learn from home and some of us will be in mixed classes in school. Our new value is resourcefulness and it fits in very well with what we will need to do for the next months.

Bye for now,

Hoping to see you soon,

Silver Birch Class
