Ideal for Roald Dahl Day on September 13th, World Book Day (WBD), end or start of term fun, at the end of a Roald Dahl focus / topic or just as a Roald Dahl celebration because almost all children love this author and his quirky characters! Why not use it as an early finisher activity, to be completed over several lessons? Suits Key Stage 2 or early KS3 and equivalents. Collaborative completion works especially well as it will spark off informal reading chats as children compete against other groups to finish it, pooling knowledge of this popular children's author's texts - his stories, poems and works of autobiography. Children could research any questions they do not know. In addition to the Solution, I have also included an Answer Sheet with the answers listed in alphabetical order to give out for differentiation or when pupils have done as much as they can.
