Roald Dahl
Some Websites for you!
Classics are Born!
'Then one day, James's mother and father went to London to do some shopping, and there a terrible thing happened. Both of them suddenly got eaten up (in full daylight, mind you,and on a crowded street) by an enormous angry rhinoceros which had escaped from the London Zoo.' - 1961
George's Marvellous Medicine
Using it in the classroom!
Maths Ideas

Look at the capacity of different containers... Which size container might George need to make a new medicine?

What capacity would the container need to be to make medicine for all of his dad's farm animals?

Could be used to show the less
than and more than!

Science Ideas
Look at different types of materials... Which ones would dissolve in George's medicine? Which ones would melt? Which ones would float / sink?

Think about medicines that the children are familiar with. What do they do to our bodies? How can we use them safely?
Investigate pharmaceutical companies... what do they do? What rules do they have to follow?

"They're completely new! I am inventing them for children who are given very little pocket money. You can put an Everlasting Gobstopper in your mouth and you can suck it and suck it and suck it and suck it and it will never get any smaller!" 1964
Roald Dahl 1916-1990
Famed children's author Roald Dahl was born in Llandaff, South Wales, on September 13th, 1916.

His parents were Norwegian.

Roald Dahl

Fighter Ace
He kept with the adult writing...

producing the best-selling story collection Someone Like You in 1953, and Kiss, Kiss in 1959.
Dahl wrote his first story for children, The Gremlins (never reprinted), in 1942, for Walt Disney.
The story wasn't much of a success...

so Dahl went back to writing macabre and mysterious stories geared toward adult readers.
Could you turn the story into a play and perform it? Use this video for inspiration:


For those of you on Pinterest, there are tonnes of teaching ideas! Here is one persons "board"
This book is excellent! It pretty much has recipes related to every one of his children's books!
Can you guess which book this is from?
Design and Technology?
