Today, we looked at the characters and learned how to empathise with them. We started the day by reading an extract from the book, when Gandalf invites the Dwarves to Bilbo’s house (without his knowledge) for an unexpected party. We thought about each character and how they felt and created a word bank. We then acted out each part and created a freeze frame. The chidren discussed about each character and created a Pic.Collage describing their feelings. They had a fantastic time and this helped them to understand and empathise with the characters. Take a look at their work.
Do you think Bilbo was right to be angry? Explain why.
