Roald Dahl Museum Trip

Posted: 28th March 2022

Year Three and Four had an exciting day at the Roald Dahl Museum on Tuesday 15 March. The museum is in the village where Roald Dahl lived and we got to see many places that were related to his life and his stories. Upon arrival, we saw the library that inspired Matilda, the red petrol pumps from Danny, the champion of the world as well as the Willy Wonka gates made by Warner Brother for the museum. After we returned to the museum, we put our creative collaborator skills to good use and made monsters out of playdough, created pictures using his actual photography, and made up some silly stories based on some of his jottings. The children all worked brilliantly together and used their core values throughout the activities. The weather was beautiful so we took our lunch outside and sat in the courtyard under the golden Wonka gates. After lunch, we collaborated again to create a picture book. The children had a fantastic day.
