Roald Dahl Day

What a fantastic day we had to celebrate Roald Dahl’s

birthday. Here’s what each class did…

  • Conker Class learnt about the different characters in Roald Dahl’s books. They looked at the pictures of characters and thought about what they might like doing.
  • Chestnut Class discussed what an author was and wrote about the fact that Roald Dahl was a famous author who wrote lots of books. They then wrote about him using their best handwriting.
  • Cedar Class introduced themselves as our characters and some children sat in the hot seat to be

questioned. They listened to some Revolting Rhymes and picked out the rhyming words.

  • Willow Class enjoyed reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. The found Willy Wonka’s

Inventions fascinating; this inspired them to create their own chocolate creations.

  • Cherry Class focused on the BFG and explored sound through vibrations, sound bingo and instruments. They learnt the scientific names for parts of BFG’s ear and made potions using capacity and estimating and measuring knowledge. They then turned the bubbles into a wonderful art piece.
  • Maple Class designed and built pheasant traps during their outdoor learning session (based on Danny Champion of the World). In the afternoon, they read a chapter from Going Solo and then drew their own autobiographical storyboards about a funny event.
  • Redwood Class studied the illustrations of Quentin Blake and used his ideas to either recreate their

favourite Road Dahl character or made one of your own up.
