ENGLISH

The Hobbit by J R R Tolkein

Today we are starting our new book.  Have a listen/read of the opening section, what do you think?  Do you already know the story?  Have you seen the film?  How does it compare to the book?

 

 

The opening chapters have a wide variety of characters.  Small, hairy-footed hobbits, bearded dwarves and the tall, magical Gandalf.

Beginning with Bilbo, draw an outline of him on a piece of paper – he doesn’t have to be perfect, just a roughly hobbit shape, don’t forget his big feet.  Think about what we know about hobbits and their habitats. (You can start with his feet; large and hairy.)  Around the outside, write what the book tells us about Bilbo.  Try not to think about the rest of the story if you have seen the film, and concentrate on just what is in the first part of the book.  On the inside of your character, what do we know about his emotions and feelings?  What is he like as a person (hobbit)?  Try to use some brilliant words, you can use an online thesaurus to look up other words for ‘nice’, or ‘kind’.  The more you do here, the easier it will be to write later.
