'With Jesus, we learn as a joyful family and flourish to be the best that we can be'


Listen to and enjoy the opening of Esio Trot by Roald Dahl.  Stop the audio recording at the 2:39 mark.

After listening, think about any new and interesting vocabulary which you have heard and use a thesaurus or to explore synonyms.  Some vocabulary words you could explore are widow, riot, polite, distance and courage.


Now, create a character chart about Mr. Hoppy.  Write down all of the things that you have found out.  Here is a WAGOLL of a chart you can use: 

Where does he live?  
What do you think he did for a job?  
What does he like or love?  
How old do you think he is?  Explain why.  
Which other characters are there?  
What else do you know?
