Crawford Primary Pupil Council Meeting Jan 2016



Dahlicious Dress Up Day

On Tuesday 20th October Crawford Primary School took part in the Dahlicious Dress Up Day celebrating the work of Roald Dahl as part of P5-7’s literacy topic, ‘Scrumdiddlyumtious’. The playground was full of amazing sights such as Matilda, the Trunchbull, the Enormous Crocodile and the BFG!

The pupils and staff all had a wonderful day taking part in many Roald Dahl based activities.

They did a how to recognize a witch activity, sang some songs  from the Charlie and the Chocolate Factory movie, held a costume parade and took part in a Hot Seating activity where they answered questions as if they were the character they were dressed up as. Carlos Monteiro in P2 made a wonderful Willy Wonka and really got into character.

The parents of the Pupil Council members kindly baked cakes which were on sale at playtime and were very Dahlicious.

To close the day all staff and pupils watched the Crawford Primary version on DVD of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory from 6 years ago.It was great to see the present P7s as P1 oompa loompas.

The pupils raised £57.75 on this day which has been sent to Roald Dahl’s Marvellous Children’s Charity.This money will help children in the UK.

Have a look in our Gallery to see more photos of the day.

Well done Crawford! And well done to the Pupil Council and their parents for all their hard work in making the day such a success!
