Roald Dahl Day


2016 marks 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl - the world’s number one storyteller. On Roald Dahl day, everyone in school dressed up as their favourite character from one of the many books he wrote.

Throughout the day there were a lot of activities based on the stories and characters create by our literary hero.

There was a competition for the best dressed character, so we all paraded around the hall to show off our costumes.

Older children read their favourite stories to the younger children.

The pupils in Class 2 transformed into workers of the Wonka factory and created sweets. Obviously there was a twist to them! Orange sweets which tasted of peppermint, and green or blue sweets which tasted of orange. Some creations combined the two – those sweets had a very unusual flavour!

Frobscottle bottles were decorated. There was a competition for the best label.

Everyone had a lovely day celebrating the life and works of one of the best children’s writers to have ever lived: Roald Dahl.
