On Friday 25th September 2015 the school saw some strange and wonderful Dahlicious characters walk through the school gates. From the disgusting Mr and Mrs Twit to the extrordinary Willy Wonka, everyone made a fantastic effort to dress up and enjoy the activities planned for the day.
The activities planned for the day encouraged the children to use their writing skills in creative ways by focusing on a particular part of the story. These were as follows:
- EYFS, 1/2 RI & LIFT - Mr Twit’s Dirty Beard
Activity - To create art work, showing Mr Twit’s Beard.
- 1/2 KR & FC – The House, the Tree and the Monkey Cage
