Roald Dahl Day
September is Roald Dahl's birth month, and each year we celebrate with a wonderful array of events centred around his birthday on 13th September.
This year pupils at Nottingham Academy Primary spent lots of time revisiting the wonderful books by Roald Dahl and voted for their favourite character,
The winner was Matilda, a very popular character with 178 votes! Matilda Wormwood is the clever, brave, book-loving girl from one of Roald Dahl's last published books Matilda.
The children wrote about their favourite character, see some examples below.
Road Dahl has always been a very popular author at Nottingham Academy and we look forward to reading his books all year and celebrating him again next September!
