Roald Dahl

Exploring the great stories of Dahl

Roald Dahl is a national treasure who has enchanted and enriched the minds of children (and adults alike) for decades. Join us as we explore some of his most loved books, grusome characters and strangest words! In this workshop students will recreate some of Dahl's most famous books: climbing into the giant peach, cooking up some marvellous medicine, joining together to scare us with their huge Bloodbottler giants and grisly witches, searching for the enormous crocodile and much much more. They will learn the Gobblefunk language, make up their own Roald Dahl character inspired names and also create their own Roald Dahl stories, following his principles to enthral their audience!

"The workshop was amazing. The ladies tailored it to our focus text but taught us new facts along the way too. Both directors were fab the children loved them but equally their behaviour management was strong. I could take off my teaching hat and just watch the fun! I liked the opener with facilitator in role, the scenery and the props added to the fun. As a drama teacher myself I genuinely can't think of anything to improve. I have had many moments in the past when a company came in and I thought they could have been better but today really was brilliant. Please come back again!" - Helen Macdonell, Penthorpe School, Horsham.

"There was a really good coverage of Roald Dahl stories and children came out with a wider knowledge. Both directors were brilliant!! We really enjoyed the workshop, in the children's words "The best thing this term!" Thank you!" - Seema Varsarni, Vaughan Primary School, Harrow.
