Roald Dahl Day
Roald Dahl Day!
“If you are going to get anywhere in life you have to read a lot of books.” Roald Dahl
What a great start to a new academic year; celebrating the birthday of one of the world’s best loved authors! Roald Dahl’s stories are timeless and his inspiring and wacky characters continue to live on today, more than 40 years after they were originally created.
At BISM, the day began with children bouncing into school dressed as Matilda, The Witches, Charlie, Fantastic Mr Fox and, of course, Willy Wonka. Curriculum lessons were themed around Roald Dahl stories and the classes took part in phase carousels; visiting different classroom within their phases and having lessons with different teachers.
At break and lunchtime, lots of children were running around the playground with a pencil and paper, trying to answer as many hidden Roald Dahl questions as possible.
For some children, the day didn’t end at 4:30pm. The homework that week was linked to the activities that the children had been taking part in during Roald Dahl Day and some incredibly impressive poems, stories, science experiments and artworks have been submitted!
Thank you to all of the children, teachers and parents for making this an unforgettable school day!
