Resource Pack: Roald Dahl's Boy

What’s the story?

All sorts of unusual things happened to Roald Dahl when he was a boy. There was the time he and four school friends got their revenge on beastly Mrs Prachett in her sweet shop. There are  holidays in fishing boats, African adventures, and tasting chocolate for Cadbury. You’ll hear about horrible school bullies and the motor-car accident when Roald’s nose was nearly sliced clean off . . . Roald Dahl vividly shares his memories; some are funny; some are painful; some are unpleasant; all are true.

Included in the pack:

You’ll get six inspiring lessons with both Literacy and PSHE objectives, plus templates, worksheets and extracts.

This pack can be used as you read the book together as a class or for one-off lessons. Introduce pupils to the concept and structures of biographies, discuss whether Roald Dahl’s tuck box constitutes healthy eating and practise descriptive writing.
