The hare and the Tortoise

The Hare and the Tortoise

Paragraph 1: Retell and summarise an Aesop Fable of your choice
The Hare was once boasting of his speed before the other animals. “I have never yet been beaten” he said. I challenge anyone here to race with me.  The Tortoise said quietly, “I accept your challenge.” “That is a good joke,” said the Hare; “I could dance round you all the way. “ Keep your boasting till you've won,” answered the Tortoise. “Shall we race?"”  Of course” said the hair. So a course was fixed and a start was made. The Hare darted almost out of sight at once, but soon stopped and, to show his contempt for the Tortoise. The hare laid down to have a nap. The Tortoise plodded on and plodded on, and when the Hare woke up from his nap, he saw the Tortoise just near the finish line. So the hare ran as fast as he could. But then the tortoise did not  make it  . Then the Tortoise said “Slow but steady progress wins the race”
Paragraph 2: Explain the morale of the fable.
The moral of the story is: If you are faster than someone. It doesn't mean you take a rest by a tree.

Paragraph 3: How does the morale apply to your life? What have you learnt?

Sometimes people will think there faster than you. Sometimes you can beat them in a race.
