Today Miss M’s school is holding The Dahlicious Dress Up Day – a fun way to raise money for Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity. So the idea is to dress up as a character from any of Roald Dahl’s fantastic books and pay of a donation of £1 which goes towards the Roald Dahl day charity.
Miss M was a little unenthusiastic at first not really knowing who Roald Dahl was, although when I explained that he was the author who wrote Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – a film she loves to watch, her interest grew. We had a look online at all the different titles he had written to see what she fancied dresses up as. And we decided upon a witch to fit in with his book The Witches.
We arrived for school to find a total of ten girls in her class had chosen to come along as witches!! Amongst all the witches I spotted Oompa Loompa’s, a Willy Wonka chocolate bar (yes really!) and grandpa Joe (Charlie’s grandpa). What a wonderful display of characters and a fabulous Roald Dahl day had at by all at the school concluding in a whole school assembly for everyone to celebrate their fabulous outfits and charity success!!
