We went to the Pupil Voice Forum at Bryntawe school. We went with Mrs Sam Williams and two pupils from Birchgrove Comprehensive. The first task was a team building exercise. We had to build a tower from marshmallows and spaghetti! It was great fun but quite difficult too. We had the opportunity to tell Mr Harvey, who is the director of education in Swansea, some of the things that could be improved in our schools. I forgot to mention the amazing buffet at the start. We all felt really important and I got to talk to other pupils who are in comprehensive.

Roald Dahl would have been 100 today if he was still alive! He was born in Llandaff, Cardiff, Wales in 1916. He was named after the Norwegian polar explorer, Roald Amundsen. He was once a fighter pilot in World War 2! Roald Dahl wrote short adult stories, but instead found a passion for writing children's stories. His illustrator was Quentin Blake, an English man.
Roald always wrote in his shed in his back garden. Sadly, he passed away on the 23rd Of November 1990 at age 74.
