A Scrumdiddlyumptious Roald Dahl Quiz! 

Engage, Inform, Inspire

At News Mag Media, we like to look after our readers, teachers and schools! So, every now and then, we happily create extra resources that we think you might find useful –  perhaps as morning time activities (while you get set up for the day) or as engaging worksheets for early finishers.

Tomorrow, as you may know, is Roald Dahl Day (and his birthday!). If he were alive he would be 107! So, as he IS one of the best-loved children’s authors and as most of your pupils will have read at least one of his books, we thought a grand little quiz would be a welcome resource for you to use tomorrow. On us 🙂

Click on the picture below to access the worksheet on our new website (about time, says you!) and print and distribute as you like.

If you have time, a little share on socials would be great!

Here are the all important answers:
