The Landlady by R Dahl Creative Writing

(0)
In Roald Dahl’s story The Landlady, young Billy Weaver finds himself alone at night in the city of Bath looking for overnight lodgings on a work placement from his Head Office. 'Find your own lodgings, he (his boss) had said, “and then go along and report to the Branch Manager as soon as you’ve got yourself settled”. Billy is seventeen, keen to get on in his career, and he is feeling ‘just fine’. Before long Billy finds an inexpensive looking guest house where he is mesmerized by the sign ‘Bed and Breakfast’. The Landlady opens the door…as if she had been expecting him! ‘She seemed terribly nice. She looked exactly like the mother of one’s best school-friend welcoming one into the house to stay for the Christmas holidays’. And so Billy is shown around by a slightly dotty old landlady. But…after all…she is obviously harmless, isn’t she? And then Billy notices two names of guests in the guets book, and tries hard to remember where he has heard those names before… Roald Dahl’s tale is a classic tale of the unexpected, hugely popular with students, and deliciously macabre. It is studied for its style, and as an excellent example of the literary technique of foreshadowing, or hinting at what is to come. It is also used as a springboard for a piece of creative writing, which is the purpose these writing prompts included here. The writing task, is to write The Landlady’s Diary. I have included here two writing ‘prompts’ of different types; one is a modelled start of the first three paragraphs to the landlady’s diary, the other is a writing ‘prompt’ or writing frame; which simply gives the writer the opening sentence of each paragraph, and can of course be added to/amended/edited as the student writer chooses. You will of course need the Roald Dahl short story ‘The Landlady’, which is available as a PDF online.

To celebrate Roald Dahl day, we want to give something to teachers and educators, who are preparing activities to mark the great achievements from the story telling genius. We have designed 16 fantastic activities, based around familiar stories. Some activities are suitable for EYFS/SEN and KS1 children, others are suitable for children in KS2. There are a range of exciting science experiments for a selection of characters from familiar stories, there is a crossword, a wordsearch and some revolting rhyme ideas. We have even included matching cards which can be played where two of the same need to be matched for younger learners, but then we have designed a higher level matching cards game, which takes a little more thinking about, matching 2 objects that relate to particular stories written by Roald Dahl. Some of these activities have been created to really test your knowledge of Roald Dahl stories. We hope you enjoy a little gift from us to you. Happy Roald Dahl Day :-)

This is a beautifully presented Roald Dahl crossword created from facts about his life and works. Also included is an answer key for you to use as you wish. This is a perfect first lesson for students to gain a bit of context and develop their research skills! I used this for my introductory lesson before my 'Darker Side of Dahl' unit for my Year 8 students. They loved it and the answers inform their thinking for the rest of the topic. I took them to the computer suite and encouraged them to use their initiative. The questions are tricky enough not to know, but not so difficult that the students lose interest. This would also be a brilliant activity to use on Roald Dahl Day on September 13th!
