Willy Wonkas, witches and oompa loompas filled classrooms to celebrate Roald Dahl Day.
Pupils and staff alike dressed up at Manor Junior School in Dagenham on Tuesday to mark what would have been the children’s author’s 100th birthday.
Acting deputy headteacher Shern Virdi and assistant headteachers Danielle Davis and Samantha Arrarte transformed into The Witches while headteacher Karen Noble dressed up as Mr Fox from Fantastic Mr Fox.
Youngsters at the Sandringham Road school also contributed to a special assembly where they shared what they had learned about Dahl during a week of themed activities.
These included writing the author’s biography, writing their own ending to one of his famous novels and sketching a dream jar.
