Yesterday marked an important day in the calendar for Roald Dahl enthusiasts as it was Roald Dahl Day. This day is celebrated annually on 13th September to raise the profile of the fantastic work that Roald Dahl contributed to encouraging young readers. In school, we have made sure to celebrate his valued contribution through discovering more about his famous works. Classes have been tasked with investigating one of his well known books and engaging in a lesson linked to their chosen text. Some children have been busy designing and making a tortoise linked to Esio Trot with knowledge of ratio and proportion, others have been creating their own perilous potion recipes linked to George's Marvellous Medicine. We have even had children creating their own characters who's personality does not match their appearance, much like in the case of The BFG. All in all, it has been an excellent opportunity for our students to learn more about the fantastic works that Roald Dahl produced and further their understanding of why he still remains such an influential children's author!
