Roald Dahl Day

The children enjoyed the day, learning about some of Roald Dahl's most famous characters and had a great time writing character descriptions for their own Roald Dahl character!


Here are some of Roald Dahl's very best quotes.


“A person who has good thoughts cannot ever be ugly. You can have a wonky nose and a crooked mouth and a double chin and stick-out teeth, but if you have good thoughts they will shine out of your face like sunbeams and you will always look lovely.”

From: The Twits


“Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

From: The Minpins


“Having power is not nearly as important as what you choose to do with it.”

From: Matilda


“Most of the really exciting things we do in our lives scare us to death. They wouldn’t be exciting if they didn’t.”

From: Danny, the Champion of the World


“Somewhere inside all of us is the power to change the world.”

From: Matilda


“I cannot be right all the time. Quite often I is left instead of right.”

From: The BFG


“I understand what you’re saying, and your comments are valuable, but I’m gonna ignore your advice.”

From: Fantastic Mr. Fox


“It doesn’t matter who you are or what you like so long as somebody loves you.”

From: The Witches


“A little nonsense now and then is relished by the wisest men.”

From: Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator


“So please, oh please, we beg, we pray,

Go throw your TV set away,

And in its place you can install

A lovely bookshelf on the wall.”

From: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
