Summer topic - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
As part of our topic the children will be exploring a number of things from the book such as how the author, Roald Dahl uses language to describe the different characters. Through this analysis, the children will create their own unique character and describe them in the style of Roald Dahl. In addition to this, the children will explore different instructional text and produce a set of instructions for producing a chocolate bar from the factory of Willy Wonka. Moreover, the children will take part in an investigation to find out which is the most desirable chocolate bar. This will be done by blind testing and the children commenting on sweetness, creaminess and overall appeal.
