Children celebrated Roald Dahl's 103rd birthday by taking part in lots of exciting book based activities. The children had a special assembly to look at his life and the work he has done. Miss Fiddler revealed the books each year group would be reading with some clues and extracts to help children guess.
In Reception, children listened to the story of 'The Enormous Crocodile' and used their fine motor skills to cut his sharp teeth and to create some artwork using various materials.
In Year 1, children read the story 'The Giraffe, Pelly and Me' and created their own sweet to go in 'The Grubber'. They described what their sweet could taste like and what special power it could have.
In Year 2, children solved Fantastic Mr Fox word searches and used the Roald Dahl dictionary to look at vocabulary he uses in his books. They had a 'fantastic' day!
In Year 3, children wrote a diary entry based on their day with 'The Twits' and designed their own three course disgusting meal for Mr Twit to get revenge on Mrs Twit. As artists, children used pencil to sketch illustrations from the book in the style of Quentin Blake.
In Year 4, children created their own medicines and potions in the style of 'George's Marvellous Medicine' and wrote instructions on how to make them. In the afternoon, the children drew pictures of George creating this medicine in the style of Quentin Blake.
In Year 5, children listened to David Walliams reading part of the BFG audio book, watched clips of the Disney BFG film, answered some multi step Roald Dahl maths questions and wrote their own dreams before putting them in a dream jar.
In Year 6, children read a chapter of 'Boy' and thought about memories which they would include in their own autobiography.
