Robin hood

we have been learning about myths and legends and we were focusing on the story of Robin hood. We have watched a video of a story teller who told us a bit of Robin hood and it ended like this: He was behind them!!!!!!! BYE!

By Ben and Bartek.



In literacy we have been writing a Robin hood story, and we both really liked doing our own story. My story was about Robin in a archery competition and he want’s to win the golden arrow.

Ben’s Robin Hood story

He was behind them!

Robin quickly turned and raised his sword from his scabbard. Terrified, Will was hiding behind Robin thinking of something useful to do in this situation. So he thought about why they were here in the first place. To rescue Maid Marion!

Will tugged the chain that held Maid Marion tight. He got his sword and cut the chain with a clank! Robin stomped on the Sheriff’s foot. “Aa! That was my bad foot!” said the Sheriff. Maid Marion held the boys back and said, “Let me handle this one boys,” and with a big kick she knocked the Sheriff out! The guards leapt out from somewhere but Robin said they were addicted to biscuits. “Do you want some biscuits?” said Robin. “Oh yes,” said the guards. Robin Will and Maid Marion ran off back to their camp.

Syrie’s Robin Hood story

The Sheriff was behind Will Scarlet and Robin Hood so without thinking Robin turned. “Robin at last we meet” the Sheriff said wickedly. Will quivered then Robin said “Give back Maid Marion Sheriff!” And with that Robin got a small dagger and the Sheriff got out his shining and covered in blood. They started fighting. So as quick as a flash Will ran to Maid Marion and tried to pick at the lock with a rusty old paper clip.

“Come on come on” Will muttered desperately and finally the rusty old lock opened ad the rusty iron gate opened and there huddled in the corner was Maid Marion. “Come on Marion we have not got long” Will said shaking so Marion got up and tried to get to Will but she was stuck. “Help me!” she squealed desperately. “Oh no” Will said. “It looks like she ate too much cream cake” Will muttered. And they ran and saw Robin and the Sheriff fighting then Robin’s eyes glimmered. He had a plan. Then he spoke. “Hey Sheriff you know that the biggest dinosaur’s behind you!” The Sheriff turned round and as quick as lightning Robin punched the Sheriff into a sack tied him up and ran for it. “Woah she has ate a lot of cream cake” Robin whispered and escaped back into the woods.

Charlie’s Robin Hood story

Suddenly Robin felt a sword on his shoulder, the Sheriff was behind them! Robin handed Will his bow and then they both ran. Will held out the bow and the Sheriff tripped over it. Robin fought the Sheriff eventually the Sheriff fell over. Will asked him where Marion was. He told them and then Will and Robin ran to the cell she was in. Will said to the guard “Did you know if your hand is bigger than your face it’s a sign of low intelligence?” The puzzled guard held up his hand to his face and then Will smacked the guard’s hand into his face. “Help me lord help me,” said Marion. Will and Robin dragged Marion out of the cell and they started running. As they ran past the Sheriff he started getting up. Marion held up her hands to stop Will and Robin taking another step. With one strong kick Marion knocked the Sheriff unconscious. “I knew I had that,” said Marion. “Remember to shop at the village shop, all you can eat for one crown,” said Will mockingly. With that they ran back to the woods, as silent as mice. Their camp in the forest was a dump. The Sheriff’s men had wrecked it! But in a few minutes it was back to normal.

Tommy’s Robin Hood story

The Sheriff was behind them!

Will Scarlet swung round vigorously. “Robin look out!”

Robin drew his sword from his bead embroidered scabbard, and span around. Robin yelled to Will, “Go and find Marion.”

“But but-”

“Just go!”


Will ran to find Marion. He came across three staircases. He thought about which one to go up, then he saw a solid iron gate at the top of a staircase. He ran up it. he saw a scared woman in the dungeon. Could it, could it be, “Marion!”

Some fool had left the gate open. “Come on, let’s get you out of here.”

Meanwhile Robin had been fighting the sheriff. Robin had knocked the sword out of the sheriff’s hand and was now threatening to kill him. Then he hesitated.

“I’ll come back next time,” he said. “Come on, let’s get out of this place.”

“Yes I agree,” said Will Scarlet.

They ran for the portcullis. Will pulled hard on the rope, It opened with a small clink and they ran into the dark silent night, they were free!

Maili’s Robin Hood story

Robin span around to see his worst enemy.

“Will! I’ll handle this! You go and save Marion!”

“Are…are you sure?”

“Yes now go!”

Will made a run for it.

“You think you’re so clever don’t you! Nothing can get past the mighty Sheriff of Nottingham!”

“Oh really?” Robin took his sword.

“Yes really!”

Meanwhile, Will was digging a hole to save Marion. There, he saw a huddled up creature sitting alone.

“You there!” Will cried out.

“I beg your pardon!” said the creature. “How dare you speak to me like that!”

“Sorry, are you Maid Marion?” said Will.

“Yes as a matter of fact I am!” replied Maid Marion.

“Come on I’m here to save you!”

“What? You here to save me? Pah!”

“I am, Robin told – ”

“I thought it would be a handsome prince here to save me!”

“Come on we have to get you out of here!” Will grabbed Maid Marion and heaved her out of the dirty dungeon.

“Yuck how dirty I am if my father would of heard about this – ”

“Who is your father?”

“The Emperor of China!” she said proudly.


Will and Marion ran as fast as they could. When they got to the Sheriff and Robin it was getting very violent…

“Clink!” went their swords.

“Aha!” cried out the Sheriff, “I’m winning!”

“I wouldn’t let you win if it was the last thing on earth!” Come on Robin you can do it! Robin thought as quick as lightning Robin stabbed the sheriff. The sheriff fell to the ground. Just to make sure, Robin shot the sheriff with an arrow.

“Shirley shot the sheriff surely!” said Will.

“Nice one except my name isn’t Shirley it’s Robin!”

They carried on walking into the sunlight.
