Questions you could ask about this book


Before reading find our what your child think will happen in this story.

They maybe unsure what a highway is and this may be a good point to talk about highwaymen – or you could do so later after enjoying the story together.

Read the story as far as the lines about the animals growing thinner and thinner. How does your child think the animals feel? Is there anything the animals can do?

  • Are children puzzled by anything? For example the meaning of words or phrases such as ‘stand and deliver’ or ‘halt’.

  • What does your child know about highwaymen?

  • Do children know any more stories like this?

  • Is it like any of the other books they have read over the week?

The Highway Rat's manners were 'rough and rude'. Can you make a list of good manners to help the Highway Rat be nicer to others?

 

Art 

 

Make a cave painting. Use A4 paper, a regular pencil and a teabag to stain the paper when you have finished. If you have chalks or wax crayons brown, black and white crayons work really well because they are natural colours. No paint brushes are required, just use the teabag as the brush, moving it around the paper until it has been covered.

.You could create cave Art in the garden too with mud and sticks.
