Thorpe Lea Primary School

'A dedicated community working together, nurturing a safe, happy school where all children can achieve their potential'

Week Two - Roald Dahl Week

This week the entire school are celebrating Roald Dahl and his amazing books. Each year has chosen a book to read and do fun activities around, and Nursery has decided to do 'Revolting Rhymes' and also briefly cover 'The BFG'. Unfortunately we are not able to read the entire story together in our short week, however this story would be wonderful to read at home.

During the week we will learn about the BFG, his dream catching, his unusual diet, and about his dream jars - and maybe have a go at making our own dream jars!

We will also read a few of his 'Revolting Rhymes', and refer back to them in later weeks when looking at our traditional tales.


Top Roald Dahl books to read at home:

- The BFG

- Matilda

- Esio Trot

- George's Marvellous Medicine

- Fantastic Mr Fox

And many more.
