Roald Dahl Trips
As part of our Roald Dahl work years 1 to 6 all went on some great school trips. Key Stage Two went to Great Missenden where there is a museum in the house where Roald Dahl used to live, while Key Stage One went to the Children’s Gallery where they were able to play in a giant peach, crawl through Mr Foxes tunnel and make their own crocodile puppet.
Here are some of the children’s recounts of their days out:
On a misty September morning we got on a coach for the Roald Dahl museum. We went inside and we went to a shadow room. Then we were shrunk with a camera. I went down stairs next to go in the tunnel for the foxes. Then we went in the children’s gallery. It was fun. Finally we went on the coach.
On Tuesday we went outside and went on the shiny white coach to the Roald Dahl museum. The journey took ages but we made it and it was very nice. First we went to a copy of Roald Dahl’s writing hut and Helen told us that Roald Dahl’s favourite game was snooker.
After that we went to Miss Honey’s classroom had an English lesson and we made up a really funny character called Bubble Bomb. Bubble Bomb had the eyes pf a robber, a nose of a person with freckles and ears of the BFG.
After that we had lunch. I had ham sandwiches, they were very yummy.
Next we went for a walk to his gravestone. We saw Haribos, pencils and flowers on his grave. I wished we could eat the Haribos!
After that we went to the library that inspired Roald Dahl to write Matilda. We saw a green and black library card. Then we looked around the library and I saw a book by Bear Grylls.
The Roald Dahl museum is the best museum ever!
