Every year on the 13th September we celebrate the birthday of Roald Dahl.
Of course, simply spending some time reading one or more of Roald Dahl's stories is a fantastic way for your class to spend Roald Dahl Day!
But if you want to study one of the author's most popular books in-depth, Hamilton have written an excellent Year 3 English block focussed on the Fantastic Mr Fox. With integrated comprehension, SPaG and composition, this block provides everything you need to teach a range of literacy skills whilst reading this beloved Roald Dahl tale.
Through Roald Dahl’s Fantastic Mr Fox, children explore plot, character and tension and how these elements of storytelling come together to create excitement! They learn about direct speech and tense and write their own fantastic stories.
Choose from the 5 units on offer, each with a different focus.

In Day 2 of Unit 2 from our block on Monster Poems for Year 2, we feature the poem 'Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf' by Roald Dahl - great to use when you are studying exclamation marks! In the teaching for day 2, children focus on the features of exclamatory sentences and their uses. Children can identify exclamations in Roald Dahl’s 'Little Red Riding Hood and the Wolf' as you read it to them.
Hamilton offer a number of inspiring weekly plans constructed around Roald Dahl books.
