Roald Dahl’s magic has woven its way through book pages and our imaginations for decades so, at Norwich Lower School library, we thought we should take the opportunity to celebrate him and his tales on Roald Dahl Day.
This year, Dahl Day fell on Wednesday 13th September: this date is when Roald was born and would mark his 101 birthday!
During the summer holidays, ten Lower School pupils embarked on a trip described as ‘five days in another world’: a voyage around the Suffolk and Essex coasts aboard Thalatta – an historic Thames Sailing Barge.
Form 2 held their own Dragon's Den style task. They were given the task to come up with a design for the Jarrold's Site based on what they had learnt about sustainability and settlements. There were many fabulous designs, models and presentations and 12 children were selected to go through to the 'Dragons' Den' grand final, featuring judges Mr Steward and Mr Pye.
