To mark the 100th anniversary of Roald Dahl’s birth, the children wrote reflections, in independent learning, about what he has meant to them so far in their young lives. Here are thoughts we enjoyed from Faith, Zeca, Nell, Jim and Sylvie – d0 add your own.
Faith. Roald Dahl was an extremely creative person. He had a great spirit and soul. Even now he lives on for some people. His books make hundreds of children and adults laugh. He has written over 50 books! Children love his books. They’re full with joy, laughter and sometimes sadness. Even though he has died, he may live and breath among us until the end of time.
Zeca. Roald Dahl is Roald Dahl: awesome, growth-minded, excellent, wonderful, creative, impressive, hard working, undescribable.
Nell. I think all of his books are wonderful. They make me laugh. They make me sad. And they make me want to keep on reading all night.
Jim. To me, Roald Dahl means many hours of great childhood memories…. I think of dark, rainy nights with my light on reading.
Sylvie. Roald Dahl is a source of crazy words! His world is crazy…. and you could call it BIG like what goes on in his stories. Roald Dahl is a phizzwhizzing author!
