“Dirty Beasts” Steal The Show At Fulneck School’s Roald Dahl Inspired Afternoon!

A collection of “Dirty Beasts” have stolen the show at a Roald Dahl-inspired afternoon at a Pudsey school.
Fulneck School used books written by the legendary author to inspire its pupils to swap games consoles for a novel
The school boasts Diana Rigg as one of its old girls, who is best known for her role in 'On her Majesty's Secret Service' as “Tracey” James Bond's only wife. She was one of novelist Ian Fleming’s best-known characters.
Fulneck School’s West Hall was transformed into a Roald Dahl zone, where seven stations were set up in recognition of some of his best-known books.
These different stop off points included Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, George’s Marvellous Medicine, the BFG, Dirty Beasts and a Roald Dahl quiz.
And to help bring the Dirty Beasts section to life, the school called upon Julia Foster from Doncaster-based Nature Safari, who brought with her collection of animals, in including a tortoise for (Esio Trot), and, to represent the dirty beasts, a bearded dragon, hedgehog, python, tarantula and a silver back skunk named Sullivan!
Clare Humphreys, Fulneck School librarian, said: “Roald Dahl is one of the most popular children’s authors of all time, and that’s we chose his works as the theme of an afternoon dedicated to books and reading.
“And I can honestly say the animals who were here to represent ‘Dirty Beasts’ stole the show, in particular Sullivan the skunk.
“It was a superb afternoon and the pupils who attended it thoroughly enjoyed visiting the different stations where they held the animals, made slime and ate chocolate!
“Reading is fun, enjoyable and educational, and should never be seen as a chore.”
