Roald Dahl’s 100th Birthday



Today is Roald Dahl’s birthday. If he was still alive he would be 100 years old! The day of his birth has become known as ‘Roald Dahl Day’.

This term we listened to and read along with the audiobook of “The BFG”. We enjoyed Dahl’s descriptive writing, interesting vocabulary and his action packed storylines.

Do you have a favourite Roald Dahl story?

Which character/s do you like?

Do the quiz on the Roald Dahl website and let me know which character you are most like.  Good luck!

The students of 4A are also creating their own tribute to Roald Dahl. They will be publishing their digital creations on their blogs. Be sure to visit their blogs to find out more about why Roald Dahl is such a celebrated author.

  1. Dear Mrs Miller,
    My favourite Roald Dahl stories are The Witches, The MinPins and The BFG. I really like Sophie because she is very brave (and she has a fabulous name), The Grand High Witch and Miss Trunchbull. I have a lot more favourite Roald Dahl characters but if I listed them all I would be typing them down all day. I did the quiz on Roald Dahl’s website and I was Sophie! Which is good because we have the same name. I am a bit surprised I didn’t get Matilda because I chose reading a lot. But I like Sophie being my character. Please come visit my blog sometime.
