Roald Dahl Celebration


This year, it was the 100th celebration of Roald Dahl’s birthday.  As he is such a fantastic children’s author, we decided to use Dahl’s stories for our learning in English at the beginning of the Autumn Term.

The children have enjoyed reading a variety of his stories, such as:

  • The Twits
  • George’s Marvelous Medicine
  • Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
  • The Witches

They have used drama and role play to learn the stories and have produced some fantastic writing based on what they have read.

To celebrate the end of our Roald Dahl topic, the children enjoyed a visit to the cinema to watch The BFG.  Everyone had a great time and we used this stimulus to create fantastic displays throughout school to show some of the lovely work the children have done.
