1 Different types of sentences
The Highwayman Different types of sentences

2 DAY 1 WALT To understand metaphors and how they can be used. WILF I can write sentences using metaphors.

3 What is a metaphor? A metaphor is a way of describing something. It is when we say something becomes something else. E.g. The sun is a ball of orange flame. A baby is a soft, cuddly blanket.

4 Find the metaphor Here is the first verse of ‘The Highwayman’. Read it and write the metaphors on your whiteboards. The wind was a torrent of darkness among the gusty trees, The moon was a ghostly galleon, tossed upon cloudy seas, The road was a ribbon of moonlight over the purple moor, And the highwayman came riding, Riding, riding The highwayman came riding, up to the old inn door.

5 Were you right? The metaphors were: The wind was a torrent of darkness
The moon was a ghostly galleon The road was a ribbon of moonlight In each of these the object described has become something else.

6 Find the metaphor again
There is a metaphor in this verse. Can you find it? And dark in the old inn yard a stable wicket creaked Where Tim the ostler listened; his face was white and peaked: His eyes were hollows of madness, his hair like mouldy hay, But he loved the landlord’s daughter, The landlord’s red-lipped daughter; Dumb as a dog he listened, and he heard the robber say -

7 Metaphor fun! In your books, write metaphors that could be used to describe these: A dog A baby

8 What did you write? Some ideas could be:
A dog is a snapping crocodile, its coat is the white, crisp snow, its growl is a roaring lion, and its ears are soft, silky purses. A baby is a soft, cuddly blanket, it’s skin is fluffy cotton wool, it’s eyes are round, blue buttons, and it’s face is a chubby, round peach.

9 Metaphor fun! In your book write metaphors to describe the following:
Your teacher Your mum/dad Your pet, or a friend’s pet The weather Your friend The sun The wind

10 How did you get on? Come and share some of your metaphors here:

11 DAY 3 WALT To investigate different types of sentences. I can use ‘Inside/outside’, ‘As a’ and ‘Show not tell’ sentences to write a description.

12 Different types of sentences
Over the past weeks we have been looking at different types of sentences. Double AA sentences (two adjectives) Show not tell sentences E.g. Bess loosened her shining, black hair, allowing it to tumble out of the dark, dusty window, and the highwayman’s face burnt like a brand. Bess shook with anticipation, her heart beat rapidly in her chest.

13 Different types of sentences
We are now going to look at two more sentences. Inside/outside sentences. E.g. Bess eagerly awaited the arrival of the highwayman, (inside, however, she was more terrified than ever).

14 As a sentences These sentences use similes. A simile is when we say something is like something else. E.g. The sun was as red as a rose. Tim’s hair was like mouldy hay. His sword shone like a gleaming jewel. Her hair was as black as the dark, velvet night.

15 Have a go! Can you use as a sentences to describe the following?
The moon was as ………….a…………… Bess’ eyes were as ……………the sky. The football crowd’s cheer was as ……….a………………

16 What did you write? Here are some ideas. You may have better ones!
The moon was as bright as a shiny, gleaming pearl. Bess’ eyes were as blue as the sky. The football crowd’s cheer was as loud as a thousand roaring lions.

17 DAY 4 WALT To use different sentences to write about a character. WILF I can use ‘As a’ and ‘Show not tell’ sentences to write a description of Tim.

18 You will need to think about
Tim’s feelings for Bess. What he thinks about the highwayman. What Tim looks like. Why he was there in the dark inn-yard. What were his motives?

19 How did you get on? Come and share some of your ideas here!

20 DAY 5 WALT To describe a character’s feelings. WILF To write a diary entry as Bess, telling of her feelings for the highwayman.

21 Sustained Writing Task
Your task is to write a diary entry as Bess. You are waiting for the highwayman. Think about: What you can see, what you can hear, how you are feeling, what you are thinking.

22 Sustained Writing Task
I shall be looking for the following in your work: Double AA sentences Show not tell sentences As a sentences At least one metaphor

23 Here’s one I wrote earlier
I wondered, would he come? I sat waiting by the draughty, cold casement. The moon was a pearl set in a dark, velvet sky. The stars were like twinkling diamonds set on a royal crown. My heart beat rapidly in my chest, I could barely breathe. I waited eagerly for his arrival, (inside, however I felt terrified at the prospect that he would not come).

24 There’s more! Suddenly I heard a sound in the distance. I peered out of the window, leaning as much as I dared. My fingers trembled as I plaited the dark, red love knot in my long, shining, black hair. What was that? Another sound, much closer this time! Was he here at last? My breath caught in my throat as I heard the horse’s hooves clattering and clashing in the yard. My heart leapt as I heard tapping on the shutters and the familiar whistle; the one I loved so well.
