-Celebrating Roald Dahl Day-

September is Roald Dahl's birth month, and each year we celebrate with a wonderful array of events centred around his birthday on 13th September.

In 2014 we're also marking 50 years of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, so it's been a particularly sweet year!

Find out what we got up to in 2014 - from the Oompa-Loompa Skydive to Puffin Virtually Live - and follow the links below for a fantastically marvellous selection of lesson plans to help your class experience Roald Dahl Day, every day.
