Roald Dahl day

Roald Dahl day actually on 13sept 


Who is Roald Dahl?
Roald Dahl was a British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot. His books have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide.

History of Roald Dahl Day
Roald Dahl has a truly amazing history, and it all started in 1916 in Cardiff, Wale, where he was born to Norwegian parents Sofie Magdalene Dahl and Harald Dahl. He lost both his sister and his father at the age of three, but his mother chose to remain in Wales to honor his father wishes that he be educated in British schools. From there he continued to Repton School in Derbyshire, where one of his most important works would be conceived. Cadbury regularly sent chocolate bars to the school to be tested by the students, which led to Roald having dreams of creating a chocolate bar so delicious that Mr. Cadbury would praise it. If you guessed this was the origins of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory you’re dead on.


What you may not know is that he went on to be a Fighter Ace during WWII, and had a long and distinguished career in which he fought in some of the most significant air battles of the war. Ultimately he started experiencing severe headaches that prevented him from flying, and spent the rest of his career working as a diplomat, writer, and intelligence officer. It was during this time that he wrote The Gremlins his first children’s book, and it was written for Walt Disney Productions to promote a full-length film that remained unmade. From there on out he continued writing prolifically, creating some of the most popular stories in history.



Now to celebrate the Roald Dahl day, we do an activities such as reading story book that written by Roald Dahl, Roald Dahl treasure hunt also we want opinion from students about Roald Dahl..how do they think Roald Dahl.


until then
