Witham St Hughs - Roald Dahl Evening
What an incredible evening we have had at our Roald Dahl extravaganza! Teachers and children dressed as their favourite Roald Dahl characters and took part in events inspired by the author’s stories. Children made dream catchers, took part in marvellous medicine potion making, tested their agility in the Giant Peach obstacle course and put their knowledge to the test to be the ultimate Roald Dahl quiz champions!
Luke Temple Author Visit
This morning we were visited by author Luke Temple. He entertained us with readings and activities from his books. Luke will visit the Academy again tomorrow and children will have the opportunity to purchase signed copies of his books.
