Year 1 Roald Dahl Day


Today in Year One, we were celebrating Roald Dahl’s 100th birthday. Lots of us didn’t know many stories written by Roald Dahl so we had lots of fun listening to snippets from a few of them. We voted and our favourite book was ‘George’s Marvellous Medicine’.

To celebrate his birthday we did some Roald Dahl themed writing. We imagined what we would put into our medicines for George’s Grandma. After designing our medicines we then thought about what would happen to his Grandma if she drank them – some of our ideas included squeaky clean teeth, growing extra-long arms or even growing toothpaste hair! Later on, we made our very own bookmarks and coloured in our favourite Roald Dahl characters.
