Danny, the Champion of the World lesson plans

Three lesson plans for literacy, PSHCE and Design Technology

Roald Dahl's Danny the Champion of the World, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

Danny, the Champion of the World was first published in 1975. It was inspired by the Buckinghamshire countryside Roald Dahl lived in, and the story brings together many elements of other books he'd written as well as giving the world an early glimpse of The BFG...

In the panel you'll find three lesson plans for literacy, PSHCE and Design Technology inspired by Danny's world. Students can design a new pheasant-catching trick, explore the relationship between Danny and his Dad, and develop suspense writing.
