ROALD DAHL DAY- 13th september 2019
On Friday 13th September our new YR7 cohort celebrated Roald Dahl Day, helping to raise money for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity at the same time. They had themed lessons, with a ‘Revolting Rhyme’ to start each and were asked to wear something yellow (Dahl’s favourite colour).
This term in English YR7 will be studying ‘Boy’, an autobiography of Roald Dahl's childhood and teenage years that begins with the story of his parents, Harald and Sofie, and his uncle, Oscar. Roald's childhood was a whirlwind of harsh physical punishments at school, rambunctious misadventures with his friends, and quality family vacations.
There are further literary events on the horizon within the department, beginning with National Poetry Day on 3rd October for which there will be a poetry competition on the theme of truth. More events will be taking place during World Book Week, March 2020, and we hope that your child will get involved in the Carnegie Awards Club as well.
