Good morning Year 4,

We hope you had a nice weekend. Now for our second week of home-schooling. Last week was a great success and you smashed it! Let’s do the same this week Team Year 4!

Rise and shine! Let’s wake up and get energised!

Take part in Joe Wicks P.E lesson that is streamed live on his YouTube channel ‘The Body Coach Tv’. This starts at 9am. Get your water and sweatbands ready!


This morning, your first task is to answer these questions related to the poem ‘The Highway Man’. You will find the poem as an attachment.

Read pages I , II, III

  1. What do you think the poem is about?
  2. What do you think ‘the wind was a torrent of darkness’ means?
  3. Why did the author repeat the word riding?
  4. List three things that the Highway man was wearing.
  5. List three sets of rhyming words.
  6. Find and copy an example of alliteration.
  7. What do you imagine when you read ‘the road was a ribbon of moonlight’?
  8. Where was the Highway man riding to?
  9. What fabric was the Highway man’s coat made from?
  10. Find and copy the phrase that tells you the Highway man’s boots were tight.
  11. What is the rhyming pattern in the poem? Use the letters of the alphabet to answer this. Eg: ABAB.

I am not sure what is happening with the highway man poem. It has been re-saved in two different formats now. When opened form the blog I was able to see all 3 pages so I am not sure if this is a technical issue. Please do try the second take and see if that works :) 

If not then try this :

It is on Twinkl.


For English, you need to complete pages 14 and 15 of your CGP book then write a character description for the Highway Man. Look at the attached picture of the Highway Man to help you.
