Hilden Grange School

A Dahlicious Day

Staff and pupils celebrated the genius of Roald Dahl by dressing up as his wonderful characters on Roald Dahl Day.  The school was awash with Oompa Loompas, studious Matildas, earnest Charlies and a smattering of crocodiles.

The day sparked some imaginative writing in Mrs Napadano’s Year 4 class as the pupils used their knowledge of adjectives to bravely answer back to Miss Trunchbull. "You moth-eaten, mouldy, maggotty monster!", “You are grumpier than a monkey with a sore bottom!" and "You are more shapeless than a slimy, rotten pineapple that's been eaten by a starving tiger!" were some of their creative insults. Year 1 enjoyed creating dreams that the BFG could blow into their friends bedrooms.

In Maths the children worked through some tricky problems, pondering how many hours of television Mike Teavee watched in a week and how many Scrumpdiddlyumptious bars can be produced a day.

This year's theme is all about championing bravery, showing support for all the seriously ill children who demonstrate their bravery each and every day. All proceeds from the day will go towards Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity which funds Specialist Children's Nurses to provide expert care and support to children with serious illnesses.
