Roald Dahl Day 2013


On the 13th of September Ivy Chimneys took part in the worldwide event, Roald Dahl day. A celebration of Roald Dahl’s birthday and his fantastic stories. Roald Dahl is a very famous author, he wrote lots of amazing books such as Matilda and the BFG. Most of the children have read at least one of his books, or maybe seen one of the many films that have been made.

We all dressed up, including the teachers, as characters from one of his books. Mr Furness was The BFG and Mrs. McKenzie, Miss Roberts and Mr Jones dressed up as Boggis, Bunce and Bean from Fantastic Mr Fox.

Every class had a unique, exciting lesson during the day. In my class we made up some words, just like Roald Dahl used to do, to describe things.
We made some describing words:

Brillious (a mixture of brilliant and fabulous)
Awesometastic (awesome and fantastic)

We also created items for a menu:

chream (chocolate ice-cream)
Sticken (steak and chicken)

To end the day we gathered in the hall to watch a ‘Live Event’ featuring Roald Dahl’s daughter, a special performance from ‘Matilda – The Musical’ and also a preview of the ‘Charlie And The Chocolate Factory’ musical.

All the children really enjoyed the day and are looking forward to reading some more Roald Dahl stories.
