Today the whole school celebrated what would have been Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday if he were still alive. Roald Dahl is considered the world’s greatest storyteller. Children and staff dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl characters and they took part in a special day of Dahlicious activities! In Pippin class the children investigated Mrs Twits spaghetti, enjoyed ‘The Giraffe, The Pelly and Me’, made party hats, played some party games and even had a piece of chocolate from Charlie’s Chocolate factory!
Come mid-morning one of Matilda’s school friends decided to lead assembly as Mrs Robinson was nowhere to be seen! Then suddenly The Trunchbull came in and started telling everyone off for having too much fun. Lavender, (Mrs Clements) gave The Trunchbull a glass of water to calm herself down, and somehow a lizard got in the glass! The Trunchbull was not very happy at all and stormed out of the hall!
For the rest of the day, children in Russet class looked at various Roald Dahl books, completed artwork and designed new covers for their favourite books. Children in Bramley class read excerpts from ‘Fantastic Mr Fox’, looked at characters in the text to study and thought about what it would really mean to be the world’s greatest storyteller.
A HUGE “thankyou” to all the children and staff for taking part in such a memorable day! I’m sure that there will be a Roald Dahl themed treat at the end of the week! Well done!
