Prizes were won and quiz's completed when students and staff from Charles Darwin School, in Biggin Hill, celebrated Roald Dahl Day.
The fun began with a Roald Dahl themed quiz during reception, which all pupils took part in by answering questions about both the author and his books.
The lucky winners got a slice of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory inspired sweet pizza.
With Roald’s belief that a story should grab the attention of the reader from the first sentence in mind, the English department then set up a fun task where students matched the opening lines of some of Roald’s classic stories to the correct book title.
The day concluded with students being asked to use their imagination to create a new product for Willy Wonka and his Oopa-Loompa’s to produce in their chocolate factory.
The winners were a ‘Never Ending Sherbet Pot’ by Lauren Thompson of Key Stage 3 and ‘Wonka Chocobites’ by Maureen Oyedele of Key Stage 4. Both girls won a collection of Roald Dahl books.
Maureen said: “My favourite Roald Dahl story is Matilda. I have also been to see the stage show which was great and I’m looking forward to reading some more Dahl.”
English teacher Mrs Holloway, who had organised the events to celebrate the day added: “Well done to everyone who entered, there were some inventive responses.”
