26 Sep Roald Dahl Day
Year 5 had a great day dressing up as some of Roald Dahl’s most famous characters. The children got to make their very own Roly Poly bird using feathers, tissue paper and paper plates. They also got to strut their stuff in the afternoon in our very own fashion show. It was amazing to see lots of Matildas, Sophies, Willy Wonkas, BFGs and many many more. We even had a Bruce Bogtrotter with a half eaten chocolate cake and a we had GIANT peach! We finished our exciting day with the Roald Dahl stream where the children got to follow along with Quentin Blake as he drew a Hornswoggler from Billy and the Minpins.
Well done to the children for putting in such great effort. They were fantastic!
Noura Haq gave her recount of the day:
On Thursday 13th September, Roald Dahl day took place. Many children enjoyed dressing up as their favourite characters. All staff and fellow pupils were very impressed with the effort and creativity put into the costumes, but of course we can’t forget the catwalk! We had Oompa Loompas bouncing, Mr Foxes marching, Sophies tiptoeing, Matildas wandering and much, much more! Although we couldn’t get the live stream to work, we watched the one from last year which was just as fun! We did some arts and crafts such as finishing off our Willy Wonka drawings from a previous art lesson and making a custom Roly Poly bird out of feathers and cardboard! We were surprised with the teachers’ costumes and we were proud of the effort they put into them. In the middle of the day we edited and improved our Mr and Mrs story. At the end of lesson three, we received some Roald Dahl themed activity packs and all the children had fun colouring in the characters.
We also learnt fantastic facts such as: Did you know Roald Dahl was a fighter Pilot?
He had two very interesting items on his work desk, pieces of chocolate wrappers and his hip bone!
Overall, Roald Dahl day was an unforgettable experience and I hope we treasure it forever!
