Skills worksheet - Unit 1

Reading

“Who, Sir? Me, Sir?”

K. M. Peyton

“It was Sam Sylvester, a teacher at Hawkwood School, who started the trouble. Just along the road from Hawkwood there was another school called Greycoats. Parents paid a lot of money to send their children to Greycoats, and the children were clean and tidy, wore expensive clothes, and did well in examinations.

At Hawkwood the parents did not pay any money and the children were much better at fighting than passing examinations. They were happy about that. Passing examinations meant hard work, and who wanted to study every evening?

But Sam Sylvester was worried about the difference between the two schools. He wanted Hawkwood to be as good as Greycoats, and he was always telling his class to work harder, to try and make a better life for themselves.

“That's the trouble with you lot,” he said to his class one day. “You don't care about anything.( ) I want you to have ambition. To do things. To want things.”( )

But Mr Sylvester's class don't really know what they want except for one boy who wants to go to a football match and one girl who wants to ride a horse in the Olympic Games.

So Mr Sylvester devises a plan to show the children at Hawkwood that they can have the same ambitions as the boys and girls at Greycoats.

On Monday morning Sam's class listened with open mouths as Sam told them his news.

“Now listen carefully, because this is very important. I want to show everybody that Hawkwood School is just as good as Greycoats. Some people think that my plan is impossible, but I know we can do it. We're going to enter a tetrathlon * team against the Greatcoat's team, and I've promised we will beat them. The competition is next summer so we have got almost a year to get ready. It just needs hard work. And four people in the team -” Sam said the parents liked the idea.

*tetrathlon = running, swimming, shooting and riding

1.- What is the main difference between Hawkwood School and Greycoats?

2.- What, according to the extract, is the difference between the pupils?

3.- What does the teacher, Mr Sylvester, consider to be the one defining fact that separates the two schools? Do you think he is right? (Give your reasons.)

4.- This novel is set in a multi-racial, inner-city school where many of the pupils come from relatively poor families. Do you think ambition alone will help them?

5.- What difficulties do you think the Hawkwood pupils encounter in their training?

6.- Why do you think the parents like the idea?

7.- Who do you think eventually wins, and why?

8.- In your opinion, are inter-school competitions a good idea? (Give reasons.)

2.- What do you think it means to pass an exam “with flying colours”?

4.- Listen to the extract from the novel again. This was written in the 19th century. Do you think it is good advice for teachers today?
