    A Highwayman is a person who rides on a horse and shoots anybody who comes and will rob them. They were so brave, they would even ambush a carriage. However, this isn’t a good thing or a nice thing to do!

    Also, there are different highwaymen. I’ll name two: Dick Turpin and Robin hood.

    There is a poem written by Alfred Noyes where a highwayman loves Bess, a landlord’s daughter. At the moment, we’re learning about it in Y5. The highwayman gets shot by King George’s men in the end. How sad…

    Questions to think about:
    1) What is a Highwayman?
    2) Can you name any famous Highwaymen? Why were they particularly famous?
    3) In which century did Highwaymen work?
    4) What kind of men became Highwaymen?
    5) What does incarcerated mean?
    6) Where was Dick Turpin incarcerated?

    Well done to Sophia who was the first to complete this challenge!
