Authors Live Teacher Ambassador Programme: Roald Dahl - Case Study Package

Linda Murray and Aileen Fisher, teachers at St Peter's Primary School in Galashiels, were our first pair of ambassadors on the Authors Live Teacher Ambassador Programme. They were charged with the task of running some creative activities based around our Authors Live: Roald Dahl Day Celebration event. They tied their work into their BFG topic and came up with many fabulous ideas for ways to get their children excited about Roald Dahl and storytelling. Linda shared their experiences of the programme in a series of blog entries which you can read by clicking on the links below. Here she also details some of the activities they ran which you can take inspiration from. On this page you'll find everything you need to make the most of Authors Live: Roald Dahl Day Celebration in your own classroom.
