Roald Dahl 100

The BFG lesson plans

These officially phizz-whizzing lesson plans include PSHE and Literacy Objectives for lessons on Friendship, Dreams and Believing.

Roald Dahl's The BFG, illustrated by Quentin Blake.

The BFG was said to have been Roald Dahl's favourite of all his stories. The character of the Big Friendly Giant and his idiosyncratic way of talking, known as gobblefunk, is one that has delighted audience ever since its publication in 1982.

This year Steven Spielberg is bringing The BFG to the big screen! To help get your class even more excited, we’ve teamed up with Penguin Schools and Teachit Primary to create the Officially Phizz-Whizzing Lesson Plans for The BFG.

Whether you’ve read it before or are discovering the Big Friendly Giant’s story for the first time, the resources follow the plot so it’s easy to read-along. With Literacy and PSHE objectives, you can explore the themes of friendship, dreams and believing – and there’s a GIANT colour in too!

Download the lesson plan using the panel on the right, and take a look at our other educational resources and ways to have fun with your class, from Dahlicious Dress Up Day to Puffin Virtually Live.

And stay tuned - we'll have some very special Gobblefunk resources coming later in the year to support the Oxford Roald Dahl Dictionary.

You can also plan a trip to the Roald Dahl Museum for your class - find out more here.
