International Library Day: Roald Dahl’s Memorial

Posted: October 27, 2016 in READERS, Uncategorized

On Monday 24th October we celebrated International Library Day and, as 2016 marks the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth, the activities we carried out on this day were deliciously influenced by his amazing books, and in particular Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

The 1st and 2nd Bach and IB students organised 12 amazing stations where the 1 ESO students had a yummy and entertaining morning mixing different original flavours in melted chocolate to create new tastes, using 4 of their senses to determine what type of unwrapped chocolate bar they were dealing with, trying to guess different types of food while blindfolded, creating wonderful rainbows by putting skittles in water, making the “m” from an m&m float and creating monuments with jelly sweets. For our students who have special diets, we obviously had a special station so that they could take part in all the activities in a safe way.

Not everything had to do with food, though! Our Bach students had also made a space for games and activities based on Roald Dahls different books, characters and plots where our 1 ESO students were challenged in a quiz, had to use their memory to find related pictures, had a go at being the Big Friendly Giant and coming up with new gobblefunk words, became oral story tellers in the Writing Hut Mix Up where characters, settings, actions and plots from different books were mixed up to create new adventures and used their imagination to design new sweets with hilarious powers and spectacular names. Without a doubt the day was a success and Bach students and lower secondary student alike enjoyed themselves thoroughly.
