FANCY a snozzcumber or bogey sandwich? Or perhaps one with squished flies and mud?

Youngsters at Hartpury Primary School took the Dahlicious Dress Up Day – a celebration of children's author Roald Dahl's works – to the extreme.

They transformed into their favourite characters such as Matilda, oompa loompas, fantastic foxes, the Twits, Miss Honey, witches and oversized animals from James and the Giant Peach.

But they also designed and created their own Dahl-inspired rotten sandwiches, using somewhat more palatable ingredients.

Class three teacher Heather Wright said: "The effort made by all the children was exceptional.

"It just shows how inspiring Roald Dahl's stories are to this day."

It all ended with an assembly in which every child was given a chocolate bar. Eight of the bars had golden tickets – inspired by Charlie and the Chocolate Factory – and the lucky winners received a copy of their favourite Roald Dahl book.
