Middlesbrough Reads Roald Dahl challenges

Middlesbrough Reads Roald Dahl challenges

Middlesbrough Reads has created a brand new series of challenges, in partnership with the local authority, for children to do at home during the lockdown period.

Once a fortnight, we will release an activity themed around a different Roald Dahl book. Each activity will also be linked to a different room in the home, so there's lots of opportunities to be creative.

There will be a chance to win a bundle of Roald Dahl books for each challenge, and children will slowly build up a collection of work.

We'll post a new challenge on this page every other Monday so keep those eyes peeled!
