Bring the magic of Roald Dahl’s Sandford Award-winning schools programme to your class.
Whether you opt to visit the museum in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire, or visit virtually from your classroom, your students will gain skills and confidence in literacy while learning about the creative process of the world’s number-one storyteller.
Onsite, pupils will discover how they can use the same techniques as Roald Dahl and find out more about his life while exploring the fun, interactive galleries. You can also opt to head out of the museum and explore the picturesque Chilterns village that inspired so many of the stories.
“Onsite, pupils will discover how they can use the same techniques as Roald Dahl and find out more about his life while exploring the fun, interactive galleries.”
During online sessions, your class will be connected directly to a session leader at the museum who will guide you through facilitated activities. Your class will discover where Roald Dahl’s characters came from and see behind the scenes through a mixture of live and pre-recorded content.
Suitable for Years 2–8, these sessions are invaluable in developing children’s positive attitudes to reading and writing, as well as supporting you in teaching your pupils to draft, edit and evaluate.
- The museum is the home of Roald Dahl’s archive and his famous writing hut. It’s based in the village Roald lived in for 36 years.
- Online livestream sessions include a 20-minute tech test before your session and follow-up activities for use in your classroom after your visit.
