Roald Dahl Day
13 September

Though his novels were written many years ago, Roald Dahl remains one of the world's most popular children's authors. His stories have been told and re-told from generation to generation, many of them adapted for the big screen with incredible results. This primary teaching resource explores many film adaptations of his most popular stories, from Matilda and The Witches, to Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and Fantastic Mr Fox. The cross-curricular activities are accompanied by film clips, an interactive quiz, activity sheets and curriculum links.To celebrate Roald Dahl Day on September 13th (which was the author's birthday), a separate presentation designed to use in assembly, can also be found below. Also available in Scottish Gaelic. 

Ged a tha na nobhailean aige air an sgrìobhadh iomadh bliadhna air-ais, tha Roald Dahl fhathast aon de nan ùghdaran cloinne as feillmhoire san t-saoghal. Tha na sgeulachdan aige air a bhith air bilean an t-sluaigh bho ghinealach gu ginealach, mòran dhiubh air am cuimseachd airson an cinema le toraidhean iongantach. Tha an stòras bun-sgoile seo a' rùrachadh iomadh fiolmaichean a' tighinn bhon sgeaulachdan aige, bho Matilda, The Witches, gu Charlie and the Chocolate Factory agus Fantastic Mister Fox. Tha an gnìomh eadar-chuspairean seo air a chuideachadh le duilleagan-obrach agus ceanglaichean churraicealam. Airson latha Roald Dahl a ghleidheadh, air an 13mh latha an t-Sultain (an co-là-breith aige), tha taisbeanadh eile gus cleachdadh ann an cruinneachadh na seachdainn ga lorg gu h-ìosal.

What our educators say

"Our SATs results this year were great, both progress and attainment in reading and writing have improved compared with last year, which we feel has been largely as a result of integrating the Into Film strategies."
