Roald Dahl Day – 2016
Charlton children thoroughly enjoyed their special ‘Roald Dahl Day’ mixing up George’s Marvellous Medicine and preparing ‘wormy spaghetti’. Thanks to Mrs Blake and all the staff everyone entered into the spirit of the day by reading Roald Dahl stories and dressing up as his colourful characters.
Charlie and the Chocolate Factory featured largely with children (and staff) dressed as Willy Wonka, Oompa Lumpas and Charlie himself, however Fantastic Mr Fox also made an appearance as did Mathilda and the BFG. More unusual characters included the Roly-Poly bird and Esio Trot to name but a few.
It was a fantastically enjoyable and educational day for all concerned.
