Search for ideas, guides and inspiration

We love nothing more than the wonderfully creative English language, and how it can be used to paint vivid, colourful pictures; conjure up magical, whimsical characters; or used to weave tales of mischief and general tomfoolery. And it seems the Oxford English Dictionary agrees with us! Now you can mix in a whole host of Dahlesque words to add a little spice to lessons that your mini humans are going to adore. Let’s face it, Scrabble may have just got slightly more interesting too!



A multi-ethnic group of elementary age children are lying in the grass and are reading a book together in the grass.

To celebrate the September update of the Oxford English Dictionary and International Roald Dahl Day (it’s 100 years since the man himself was born) we want to hear about the words that your children think should be included in our diverse language.  So whether you have ‘fluvlies’ (lovely flowers) on your mantel piece, or you enjoy nothing more than kicking through the ‘tree crumbs’ (leaves) in autumn, or even if you use the ‘lawn lower’ to trim the grass, before spinning a somersault on the ‘bouncoline’ (trampoline), then we’d love to hear from you.  The winner will grab themselves fifteen awesome Roald Dahl paperbacks including Matilda, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, and – everyone’s favourite – the BFG.
