It was Roald Dahl Day on the 13th September this year. To celebrate lots of classes around the school have been reading some of his great books as well as learning more about him on the Roald Dahl website. Roald Dahl wrote some excellent books including Matilda, The Twits and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Some classes completed marvelous art work relating to the books they are reading.
5th Class are reading Danny the Champion of the World. Danny and his father make a living fixing cars and poaching pheasants. In pairs the students designed their own pheasant traps for poaching. They were very creative and detailed. Pop on over to A6 to find out more.
3rd Class are reading The BFG. The Big Friendly Giant likes to blow dreams into the bedrooms of sleeping children. He calls really excellent dreams golden phizzwizards. The students in Room 15 drew pictures of the dreams they would like The BFG to blow into their bedrooms. They also wrote about their dreams. Some students like to dream big! Their dreams are very imaginative.
Well done to all classes who celebrated Roald Dahl Day last week.
