Celebrating Roald Dahl Day

September is Roald Dahl's birth month, and each year we celebrate with a wonderful array of events centred around his birthday on 13th September.

Find out what we got up to in 2014, when we were also celebrating 50 years of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. From the Oompa-Loompa Skydive to Puffin Virtually Live, it was a very sweet year...

Follow the links below for a fantastically marvellous selection of lesson plans to help your class experience Roald Dahl Day, every day.
