We have been celebrating 100 years of Roald Dahl this term and Room 2 have really entered into the spirit of the whole thing. They read The Twits as a class and have been borrowing all of our library stock to read at home, plus hearing extracts from Matilda and The BFG and doing lots of fun activities.
Today everyone wore their very cool party hats and we had a great time dancing to the Oompa Loompas before playing Boggis, Bunce and Bean outside (think Fantastic Mr Fox) ….
finding the jelly snakes amongst the worms (think The Twits)…
and then lining up very patiently for the yummiest food EVER provided very kindly by our wonderful parents.
A brilliant way to celebrate a brilliant author.
For all of our happy Roald Dahl fanatics, the public library in Timaru is also having a Roald Dahl themed holiday programme, with storytime and crafts on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10.30 – 11.30 and a dress up competition at 2pm on the last Friday of the holidays. Judging from our own dress up day this term I feel sure that there are some of you who will leap to that challenge! You don’t have to be a member of the library to take part but if you haven’t been before, why not take the opportunity to join up? Ask your parents to take along some ID and proof of address and you should be able to join up. Then you can borrow some books and magazines from their amazing collection, eg they have lots of Roald Dahl on audio books which are perfect for long holiday car journeys. Take care these holidays and come back safe next term.
