Past Events 

Roald Dahl Day 2020 at St. Jude's 

Sunday 13th September marked the birthday of the great author Roald Dahl.  In school we celebrated by enjoying a range of Roald Dahl stories and taking part in a range of activities.  Have a look at what we got up to...

Pre-school looked at Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.  They melted the chocolate and mixed it and some children even sampled it as they made their buns!

Reception looked at a scene from George's Marvellous Medicine and created potions.  They experimented adding lots of ingredients and then wrote a list of what they put in their potions.

Year 2 wrote about capturing the enormous crocodile! Then they enjoyed the chocolate themed dessert we all had after lunch based on Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

In conjunction with the Book Trust, our Reception children all received a book called 'The Runaway Pea'.  The Book Trust are supporting schools this year to spark children's imagination, improve language and listening as well as encouraging children to make new friends and deal with change.  Our Reception children had so much fun with this book, planting peas first before exploring the book and then taking it home to share.
