Roald Dahl; 13 September 1916 – 23 November 1990) was a British novelist, short story writer, poet, screenwriter, and fighter pilot. His books have sold more than 250 million copies worldwide.

Dahl’s short stories are known for their unexpected endings and his children’s books for their unsentimental, macabre, often darkly comic mood, featuring villainous adult enemies of the child characters. His books champion the kind-hearted, and feature an underlying warm sentiment. Dahl’s works for children include James and the Giant Peach, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Matilda, The Witches, Fantastic Mr Fox, The BFG, The Twits and George’s Marvellous Medicine. His adult works include Tales of the Unexpected.

Welcome to the Wonderful Roald Dahl class page! We are one of the Year Two classes here at Dartford Bridge Community Primary School.

We are named after our famous British Author Roald Dahl and we will be learning about him throughout the year. This year is going to have some great topics and children will be experiencing some amazing school trips. Our planning is very cross-curricular and ensures it inspires and motivates children to be active learners.

In Dahl Class we encourage children to be independent so we have job monitors:  The children are chosen fairly and they are given jobs such as: Ubuntu Leader, School Councilor, Peer Teaching, Book Corner Monitor and Register Monitor.

We celebrate positive behaviour by using various reward systems in place. Some of the behaviour management systems are: Good to be Green system, stickers and Dojo points (which is a whole school reward system where teachers of other classes can reward your child for positive behaviour) and also lots of photos of them promoting positive behaviour.

Please feel free to speak with us at the end of your child’s day if you have any questions for us, however if there is something urgent do not hesitate to speak to us in the morning if it is likely to affect your child’s ability to learn.
