Roald Dahl Party

Roald Dahl Party

A phizz-whizzing, whoopsy wiffling, gloriumptious celebration took place in the Tupton Hall School library to mark 100 years since the birth of Roald Dahl. 

A dazzling array of creative acvitities and games were planned by the school librarians in homage to one of the world's best loved children's authors.

The 'golden ticket' invitation was open to Year 7 students, who had just started at Tupton Hall, with the aim of encouraging them to forge friendships and have fun in the library.

They entered through gigantic chocolate doors, like something from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Inside, the library - usually decorated as an enchanted forest - had also taken on a sweeter theme with giant sugary treats suspended from the ceiling.

Students played games including 'musical witch hats' and were challenges to pluck worms from spaghetti using chopsticks - not for the squirmish!

They also got creative decorating gingerbread men, concocting colourful dream jars and testing their Roald Dahl knowledge with quizzes and a treasure hunt.

Finishing with a lavish buffet students and staff agreed that the party was a huge success, having encouraged the youngsters to enjoy the library and its facilities.
