Compass Primary School

September 2021


We launched our 2021/22 academic year with Roald Dahl. In our assembly, we unearthed how Roald Dahl was born in Wales after his parents migrated there from Norway. Growing up, Roald enlisted in the RAF at the age of 23 and was a fighter pilot during WWII. We were fascinated to learn how Roald Dahl has sold more than 250 million books around the world. He was a novelist, short story writer, poet and screenwriter. During discussions, we discovered how children - roughly 85% - from Reception to Year 6 had been exposed to his work through books or films. They were all excited to learn more during Roald Dahl Day and showcase their favourite characters - see blog for more information.
