Roald Dahl's Marvellous Medicine Primary Times Children's Choice Awards Review
A must for all the Roald Dahl fans out there. This great show tells you about Roald Dahl's amazing inventions and how crucial they where to his life and played a large part in his books. It largely takes the format of a science class but with a difference and bits and pieces of all our favourite Roald Dahl's books.
Professor Tom Solomon was Roald Dahl's doctor and friend and adds a nice sentimental, personal touch to the stories and lots of humour. There is al lot of participation from the kids in the audience to get the chance to feel what a brain feels like, become a white or red blood cell. The children learn a lot from the show and uses a lot of power point slides and videos. There is a particularly amusing clip of a white blood cell chasing a bug and some good surprise experiments that you can try at home towards the end of the show.
A must for school age kids up to adult as we both thoroughly enjoyed it and would see again.
Aiden (5.5) said, "I loved it, I loved all of it" "the best bits were the video of the white cells chasing the bug and when the kids were doing it as well" "I loved the experiments at the end" "Roald Dahl was soo cool"
