This half term, we are exploring the work of Roald Dahl!

We love stories! And we especially love the weird and wacky stories of Roald Dahl. 

Why not take a tour of the Roald Dahl Museum here:

This week we are focusing on The BFG.

Each day we will be learning about a different part of the story and there will an activity too.

Here's today's challenge:

Listen to Chapter 8 of the story:

Everyone is different...and that's why we are all so special!

Imagine that you are the BFG. When he speaks and his words come out muddled up, how does that make him feel inside? 

Write down as many feelings as you can on a piece of paper. 

Turn the piece of paper over. When Sophie tells the BFG that she thinks he speaks beautifully, how do his feelings change? 

Write down his feelings now. 

The BFG felt different because of the way he spoke, and that made him feel sad. However, when Sophie praised the BFG’s way of speaking, he felt really good about himself. Let someone you know what is great out them.

Write them a note or draw them a picture.

Don't forget to post your work in the Kid Zone.
