Roald Dahl celebrations and more!

On Thursday 14th September, we celebrated Roald Dahl's birthday by having a special themed day. Lots of children (and staff!) dressed up as characters from a Roald Dahl story, we shared extracts of stories in assembly and had Roald Dahl themed events in class.

In Year 1 we have looked the story Esio Trot. We have listened to the start of the story and hope to continue the story in the afternoons. We have watched the trailer for the film, Esio Trot, with Dame Judi Dench and Dustin Hoffman. As a class we have written a letter from Mr Hoppy to Mrs Silver, made our own tortoises with patterned shells and explored "Wow" words to use instead of the word 'big'. We hope to produce a wonderful display featuring all of this and more... watch this space!

Please take a look at our magnificent efforts in dressing up as Roald Dahl's characters as we keep his memory alive as well as inspiring a love for his stories!
