 2S spent the day researching and finding out all about Roald Dahl. We created fact files about him and designed alternative book covers for Matilda and The Witches.

 

In the afternoon, we designed our own Witch wanted posters and took part in a Roald Dahl themed quiz.

 

Look out for our fantastic pieces of work at Parents' Evening!

Recently, we learned the importance of hot cross buns in the lead up to Easter and had a go at tasting some.
