Week 2 - Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

This week we are bringing Willy Wonka's magical world in to your homes and learning. Please see the learning grid below for a range of activities to try.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory by Roald Dahl, Quentin Blake ...

To launch our topic this week we have a few ideas for you to try at home. 

Why not watch a clip from the film https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OMFQtY6655E – (we suggest the clip where the children first see inside the factory).

Other video clips/ideas

You could watch the same scene from both versions of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory and/ or read this part of the book and then compare them. Some of the scenes may be too scary for younger or more sensitive children so please check them yourselves first and just show them the ones you feel they would like.
