15/09/2011 Year 8 Comments on Roald Dahl
Year 8 were asked to nominate a favourite Roald Dahl character. Below are some of their insightful responses:
"My favourite character is Matilda because she is disliked by her family, but then she finds someone who does care and who looks after her. Also because she is so cute and sweet and reminds me of my sister Aimee". Emma McCombe 8X
"Charlie in ‘Charlie and the Chocolate Factory’ is my favourite character. He came from a poor background, but he never gave up". Glen McBride 8X
"My favourite character is Willy Wonka because he was very humorous and always kept calm. He had a good imagination, which was displayed throughout the novel".
Caitlin Coulter 8X
"The best character is Matilda because she is so funny the way she teaches her Head Teacher a lesson and she is so smart". Andrew Hughes 8A
Year 8 were asked to select their favourite Roald Dahl novel. This is what they wrote:
"My favourite book is ‘Boy’ because it tells you about Roald Dahl when he was young and the funny things he did". Joanne King 8A
"Matilda. It’s funny. But it makes you jump at times too! Like when Mrs Trunchbull swung the little girl round with pigtails. I also liked when Mrs Trunchbull fainted at the end".
Jaymey Whyte 8X
"Matilda, because we have at least one thing in common- we both enjoy reading books". Madison West 8X
"My favourite Roald Dahl book is ‘James and the Giant Peach’. I like it because he gets away from his cruel aunts and he makes friends and he lives in New York". Anita McNiece 8X
