Roald Dahl Storytelling Event

13th September 2023

In honour of Roald Dahl Day on the 13th September, this week all of Year 7 enjoyed a workshop event with Andy Copps, a Roald Dahl storyteller, based on Dahl’s story ‘Billy and the Minpins’. A fantastic time was had by students and staff, with Andy really bringing the magic of the story to life.

Pupil Voice:

“I enjoyed the Roald Dahl storytelling event of ‘Billy & the Minpins’ because I found it creative, interesting and imaginative. I also liked that it was funny and the audience had a chance to interact in the story and join in with the storytelling. I liked that the story wasn’t a scary story, unlike most stories, and it had a happy ending.”
