Schools around the world celebrated Roald Dahl Day 2014 with a Virtually Live stream and much more

This Roald Dahl Day we celebrated 50 years of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory - here's how some schools marked the occasion...

Thousands of schools around the world tuned into Puffin Virtually Live's webstream on 15 September for a whipple-scrumptious Roald Dahl Day celebration hosted by Helen Skelton. She was also joined by Michael Rosen, Quentin Blake and Claudia Winkleman and, with the cast of the new musical production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory leading a global singalong, there was enough to satisfy even those with a very sweet tooth.

If you missed the fun or want to watch it again, you can tune in at any time right here.

Among the many fabulous Roald Dahl Day school celebrations we saw (above, clockwise from left to right) Dream Jars created by Little Bugs Childcare in York; children from Glyncollen School in Swansea dressing up; a wonderful packed lunch created by Packwood Haugh School in Shrewsbury; dress-up fun at Mann Elementary School in Illinois; drawing Willy Wonka at Environmental Charter School in Pennsylvania; and Mr Timbrell (or, Mr Twit...) of St Gwladys Bargoed in Wales with his class.

Here's a few more pictures of some of you lovely lot celebrating Roald Dahl Day. Stay tuned for more!
