Year 2 had a fantastic visit to the Roald Dahl Museum in Aylesbury. When we arrived we met our leaders. They talked about Roald Dahl and asked us what our favourite stories were. They picked a BFG dream for us from an old glass bottle and blew the dream for us all to catch.
During our visit we went into the upstairs gallery and saw the Twit’s sitting room upside down, stuck to the ceiling! There was also an upside down room where we could spy on people outside. We experimented with magic mirrors, shadows and optical illusions. We left the upstairs gallery by going downstairs in the Great Glass Elevator, but it didn’t go up into space.
In the downstairs gallery we could dress up, explore the giant peach and crawl through Fantastic Mr Fox’s tunnel. We acted out a scene from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.
We learned a lot about Roald Dahl and his stories and had a brilliant time!
