Roald Dahl Day

This Tuesday marked the 17th annual Roald Dahl Day and William Byrd spent some fun-filled time to celebrate this iconic author's birthday!

We learnt about his life, stepped into the worlds of the many different characters and most importantly, had a prolific number of books to choose from! With so many books to explore and read, we learnt more about each other's favourite Roald Dahl books and which characters we thought were the most memorable! The children were seen making George's Marvellous medicine with some creative ingredients; learning how to illustrate in Quentin Blake's signature style; inventing new sweets and even reporting the missing children of Wonka's Chocolate Factory- they're still on the look-out for Charlie! It was a wonderful experience and we look forward to hearing about how many of Roald Dahl's books are being read!
