Roald Dahl Celebrations

28th November 2016

We couldn't let what would have been Roald Dahl's 100th year pass by without marking the occasion. Children from Years 1 and 2 were invited to a Roald Dahl inspired after school event.

 Focusing on an extract from George's Marvellous Medicine, the children made their own concoctions from bottles and pots that appeared to contain the same ingredients as George used in the story. Ours, of course were filled with edible and glorious tasting contents. Even so, the final 'medicine' looked quite unappetising and there were few willing volunteers to take even the tiniest of sips. Maybe just as well.

We also had lots of fun listening to an extract from the BFG. How funny 'whizzpoppers' are if you are a Big Friendly Giant (or aged 6 or 7).

After listening to extracts from ‘The Twits’ and taking inspiration from Roald Dahl’s Revolting Recipes, Year 3 and 4 children were invited to create their own ‘Mr Twit’.

Teams of 4 used the recipe and instructions to produce their own supper - Mr. Twit. This was washed down with Mr. Twit's 'beer' - which, to the children's horror contained Mrs. Twit's glass eye!

To judge each face, we were visited by the real, very rude and grumpy (yet hilarious) Mr. Twit. The 'Clucking Chickens' team were the winners. Well done boys.
