Esio Trot lesson plans

A great art and numeracy lesson to accompany a great little story

Roald Dahl's Esio Trot, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

Esio Trot was published in 1990 and was one of the last stories Roald Dahl wrote that was released in his lifetime. It tells the story of Mr Hoppy, his great love, Mrs Silver, and a little tortoise called Alfie.

This lesson plan will be great fun for your students and anyone who is a fan of Esio Trot as it gives them the chance to create a classroom of tortoises, arranged into sets or order of size.

Download the lesson plan using the panel on the right, and take a look at our other educational resources and ways to have fun with your class, from Dahlicious Dress Up Day to Puffin Virtually Live.

And stay tuned - we'll have more Esio Trot lesson plans available very soon...

You can also plan a trip to the Roald Dahl Museum for your class - find out more here.
