This Tuesday sees the 100th anniversary of the birth of the Childrens' author Roald Dahl.
Even though I still haven’t quite forgiven the Roald Dahl Foundation for blocking our intended Summer production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory back in 2013(!) we will be celebrating the day – and week - in school.

In our assemblies I will be reading passages to the children from my favourite Dahl stories and on the 13th itself all classes will be involved in Dahl type activities including for some of our children watching a special pod cast where they will watch a performance from the Royal Shakespeare Company’s Matilda the Musical, draw-along with Quentin Blake and invent wondercrump words with the Word Wizards from the Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary. Plus there’ll be a message from the cast of The BFG!
