Welcome Back and Happy Roald Dahl Day!

Hi everyone,

I hope you’ve had a fantastic holiday! We are all very excited to see you all back at school and hope that you are all full of enthusiasm for the new school year.

Today, as you probably know, is Roald Dahl Day, so please let us know what your favourite Roald Dahl book is and why. I think mine is probably Charlie and the Chocolate Factory because it is full of humour, has a sprinkling of danger, lots of suspense and of course is a fabulously constructed story. I love both the movies that have been made too, however, I have a particular fondness for the old one due to watching it as a child.

So, which Roald Dahl book do you think is a real page-turner and you would highly recommend it to someone in your year group?

Happy blogging and remember to read the blog rules before writing a comment.

    At the minute 5B are reading Esio Trot and we are enjoying it a lot as some of the words are back to front, We have just started it and we cannot wait to find out what happens to Alfie the tortoise.
    Ms Hamilton’s favourite Roald Dahl book is Matilda because it is both funny and sad at the same time but Matilda wins in the end. She really likes the bit about the chocolate cake!!!
