“I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.”
― Roald Dahl
Celebrations to mark 100 years since the birth of the great children’s author Roald Dahl, have been taking place all over Great Britain and Talbot Heath school have been celebrating him too. The scrumdiddlyumptious girls from the Junior school came dressed in a colourful array of costumes for the annual celebration of Dahlicious Day recently. Their morning assembly offered some interesting facts about Dahl and during the day, many of the girls were engaged in literacy activities to celebrate their appreciation of Dahl’s books.
Once again, they had fun, raised money for charity AND learnt new things about being creative. The special day raised in the region of £200 for the Dahlicious Charity which raises funds for specialist nurses, equipment, care and support for sick children.
Thank you to all those who participated (and to the parents for their imaginative help with the wonderful costumes.)
