Robin hood

  1. 1. ROBIN HOOD By Emigdi Subirats
  2. 2. <ul><li>Once upon a time in the Forests </li></ul><ul><li>of Sherwood lived an ordinary man. </li></ul><ul><li>His name was Robin. </li></ul><ul><li>He spent his time making arrows for his longbow – a weapon he was very good at using, and helping poor people. </li></ul><ul><li>He did not like how the rich Norman Noblemen treated </li></ul><ul><li>the Saxon people who had to </li></ul><ul><li>work very hard every day, living in small huts, while the Normans spent </li></ul><ul><li>money on big feasts in large castles. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>The King of England, King Richard, was a Norman, </li></ul><ul><li>and enjoyed hunting, Prince John was the new king. Some deer were around the Forest </li></ul><ul><li>ready to be hunted. The only people allowed to hunt </li></ul><ul><li>these deer were the Normans, and there were terrible </li></ul><ul><li>punishments for any Saxon who killed a royal deer. </li></ul><ul><li>King Richard was an Honest, religious man. </li></ul><ul><li>He had left England to go to the Crusades to save Jerusalem from Turkish invasion. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Prince John was an evil and terrible man. </li></ul><ul><li>He took the people’s money with the </li></ul><ul><li>help of the Sheriff of Nottingham . </li></ul><ul><li>Robin was caught killing a royal deer </li></ul><ul><li>with his longbow once, and was declared an outlaw </li></ul><ul><li>(a bandit) by Prince John. </li></ul><ul><li>He lost his house, his money </li></ul><ul><li>and everything he had. </li></ul>His brother
  5. 5. <ul><li>The Saxon people took pity on Robin, and they helped him to live in the forest, giving him food and shelter when he needed it, and in return Robin offered to protect them from the King and his Knights. While Robin helped to defend the Saxon people against the Normans, he was a friend of a local poacher, a man who stole food from the Royal Forest, by the name of Will Scarlett. Soon the two men became good friends, and together they helped more and more people. </li></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>In times of warm weather Robin and Will spent their days in the deep of the Forest at the Major Oak. A large tree that had a large open space around it. In later times this became the main hideout of Robin and his outlaw (bandit) band. </li></ul>                                               
  7. 7. <ul><li>Robin was friendly with a Norman landowner, Sir Richard Fitzwater and his daughter, Marian.Robin offered to escort the young maiden and her servants through a dangerous part of the Forest. As he rode to meet them he noticed that the ground had many hoof marks in it. Robin wondered why there were so many horses travelling in this part of the forest. He realised that Marian and her servants were riding towards a trap of the Sheriff of Nottingham. No doubt he had told his Knights to go and rob anybody they could find and bring the money back to him. </li></ul><ul><li>Robin went quickly to Marian and her servants. He saw some of the Sheriffs Knights. Robin called out, “Stop riding, it is a trap”. </li></ul><ul><li>Hearing this the Knights leapt out at Robin. </li></ul><ul><li>“ Get off the road Saxon” they shouted, “This is the Sheriffs business.” </li></ul><ul><li>Quick as a flash Robin drew his bow and an arrow and killed two of the Knights instantly. The remaining Knights turned and began to run back to the Sheriff and Nottingham Castle. </li></ul>
