Year 5 Fiction: Distinctive Speech

In class we had fun with words by studying Roald Dahl's comic gem The Vicar of Nibbleswicke.

Learn more about fun with words here.

Task: Write a dialogue - half-a-page of A4 - between the Vicar of Nibbleswicke and his boss, the Bishop of Bath. The vicar can't afford to upset the Bishop...

Don't forget to set out your dialogue in different ways, and you should also include shown feelings and thoughts.

Feeling clever? Try to include some hyperbole, too!
