Today it is 100 years since the birth of one of the most celebrated children’s authors of all time, Roald Dahl. We love Roald Dahl books at Beaconsfield and they are so enjoyable that we can read them over and over again until we are really quite old! Even I still enjoy reading them and I’m really old!
Here are some cool Dream Jars that Room 3 created. They thought about either dreams that they had had before or dreams they would like to have. Check out Lochie’s big panda hug, Lachlan jumping from building to building, Lucy’s most golden labrador puppies and yes, even Caleb’s snot rocket!
Roald Dahl died in 1990 however we are lucky that he was quite sociable and gave some interviews, as have members of his family and these give an insight into this great writer. Here you can find some interesting clips about him collated by the BBC.
