From the English class we did a project about the writer Roald Dahl.
We worked in groups. We wrote and drew pictures about his life. We started with an introduccion on Saint George’s Day. We read and dramatized the poem “The dentist and the crocodile”. If you want to watch the performance go to INS Cap Norfeu web page.
Then, each group chose a book, Charlie and the chocolate factory, Matilda, James and the giant peach, BFG, etc. We studied the characters and the plot and after that we prepared some activities. We already had information about two books because we had read Matilda in first ESO and most of us had watched Charlie and the chocolate film.
Finally, we presented the final project on a poster full of activities and pictures with accompanying text.
We spent the last two weeks of the year on that project. We liked doing it because we worked in a different way. It was more relaxing than normal classes but we learnt a lot of facts about Roald Dahl and some of his books.
