The Year 3 girls were recently privileged to take a look into the incredible world of Roald Dahl through exhibits and workshops at the Roald Dahl Museum. They visited displays which told them about his life from a very young age, how he wasn’t the best pupil at academics and later his part in WWII as a pilot and spy. The girls got a chance to see how Roald Dahl edited his work and tried this out for themselves, and how he made up the wonderful fantasy vocabulary that he is so well known for. Working in groups, the girls invented nonsense words of their own and were able to explain what they meant and how they would be used in the context of a story. On our way to and from the museum, we also saw landmarks that inspired many of Roald Dahl’s settings in his novels.
