English KS2: A Christmas Carol

Introduction

A Christmas Carol is told in 9 episodes, each about 15 minutes long. You can read the on-screen original text while listening or stream / download audio-only versions of the story.

There is a set of Study notes for the series and a transcript of each episode which can be printed out, copied and distributed as you wish. Some of the spelling and grammar used reflects the 1843 first edition from which the text is taken.

I have endeavoured in this Ghostly little book to raise the Ghost of an Idea which shall not put my readers out of humour with themselves, with each other, with the season or with me. May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no-one wish to lay it.

Their faithful Friend and Servant
