Henry Hello, Harriet, Honey, how wonderful to see you here!
Harriet Henry, What a hoot!  How are you?
Henry I have been horrendously busy – I have hoards of healthy work, and heaps upon heaps of happy hungry customers!
Harriet How heart-warming to hear that, Henry.  How did that happen?
Henry It was at the Huntingdon summer cricket match – the heat really did the trick!  It was hazardous at first, the risk was at its height and customers eyed me in horror with half-hitched heads.
Harriet Were they hateful towards poor Henry?
Henry Oh Harriet, they heaved and howled to get to the hoarding of ‘Henry’s Happy Half-Hour’.  I used some of Huntingdon’s haystacks to hold the herds, but it was hopeless . . . hopeless, Harriet, horrendously hopeless!
Harriet Gosh, Henry!  How did you manage?
Henry Like a half-wit, Harriet.


We hope that you have found today’s lesson beneficial and enjoyable.

Don’t forget to bring the sound of ‘h’ into your every day speech sounds for practice.
