All things Dahl!
Yesterday was Roald Dahl day and we learned lots about the amazing author and person he was. We looked at his website, (link below) discussed our favourite Roald Dahl books, learned all about the adventures he had while he was alive (read all about it on the website, it’s worth a read!) Mrs Teeling was also very kind and gave us some audiobooks to listen to.
When we had done all that we looked at the work that Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake did together. We learned the difference between an author and an illustrator and looked at some of Quentin Blake’s work. Then we worked on designing new book covers for Roald Dahl books in our groups. Each group was assigned a different book and we planned our covers before recreating them on A2 sheets. It was a really good way to work collaboratively and everyone managed to get on well. The finished covers were really impressive, well done everyone!
Here we are working on our covers.
