Britannica Spotlight produces mini websites to put the ‘spotlight’ on a calendar event or a subject. The sites are designed for use by teachers, librarians and parents of UK primary school children.
This months Spotlight is Britannica’s spotlight on Roald Dahl
“The Big Friendly Read” is the name of this year’s Summer Reading Challenge in UK Libraries. The theme honours Roald Dahl, who was born 100 years ago this September. To support this, we have created a great Britannica Spotlight on Roald Dahl, whose humorous and imaginative children’s stories are favourites with readers both young and old. Read the Britannica Article to learn all about Dahl’s life and how he came to be one of the UK’s most beloved children’s authors
In the Activity Centre there are the usual puzzles and games including: Word search, Crossword and a Quiz, plus much more to entertain them. Just remember –all of the answers can be found in Britannica!
