Pupils had a lot of fun searching for hidden 'Golden Tickets' on Friday, to celebrate Roald Dahl Day. The theme was the author’s classic story of ‘Matilda’, so the decorations and prizes were cleverly based on the book.

Mrs Dearden, our school Librarian, had hidden nine golden tickets around school. A large number of eager pupils searched high and low for the tickets, which they could exchange for one of ‘Miss Trunchball’s Warts’ (chocolate) or a ‘Bookworm’ (a strawberry lace).

“It was great to see so many pupils getting involved with the day,” said Mrs Dearden. “The library was incredibly busy, not only were pupils searching for tickets they could have a go at a word search and decorate a Roald Dahl bookmark. It was a great introduction to the library for all of our new pupils.”

“I'd like to say a huge 'thank-you' to all the departments that contributed to the day. Our science department created a luminous green jug of ‘Frobscottle’, our textiles department assisted with fabric to decorate the library and create a jar of ‘Whisbizzy Wishes’ and our art department has a wonderful treasure trove of items that we could use to create ‘Phizzwizards’ and ‘Trogglehumpers’. Their contributions helped to make the day extra special for our pupils.”
